After studying Fine Arts and Decorative Arts, Michel Ocelot turned to animated films, directing for the small and the big screen nearly thirty shorts and series, including “Les Aventures de Gédéon” from Benjamin Rabier . In 1998, he directed his first feature, Kirikou et la sorcière inspired by a tale from West Africa. A million and a half spectators, young and old, are seduced. Faced with the enthusiasm of the public, Michel Ocelot will create a sequel to his famous Kirikou (2005) before making the fable Azur and Asmar (2006). The film is again a critical and public success and establishes a little more its reputation as master of animation “à la française”. His fifth feature, Les contes de la nuit is no exception to 2011. In 2018, he made the happiness of all with his latest film, Dilili in Paris.
