Trained as a D.o.P. at the Academy of Theatre and Film Arts in Bucharest, Anca Damian began her directing career with live action feature films, but rose to international fame in 2011 with her first animated documentary feature “Crulic – The Path to Beyond”, a mix of documentary and animation techniques that premiered in Locarno where it received a special mention before accumulating a few more wins on the festival circuit. After “The Magic Mountain”, another successful opus in 2015, Damian is now working on her new film, “The Fantastic Voyage of Marona” which received Eurimages support, an animated co-production between Romania, France and Belgium about a female dog trained to give everything out of love for her masters.
