Biography

Born in Dijon in 1960, Patricia Mazuy was a good student who wanted to go to the Louis Lumière Film School, but entered HEC Business School to satisfy the wishes of her father, a baker. There she confirmed her love of westerns and thrillers, discovered The Doors, who were already dead, and left school for Los Angeles. There she shot a short film on her salary as a babysitter and met Agnès Varda and her editor Sabine Mamou. Three years later, Mamou hired her as a trainee on A Room in Town, and finally, she learned about cinema. After editing Vagabond, she turned her attention to her first film, Thick Skinned. She had started writing in 1983 for Jean-François Stévenin, whose film Passe montagne she admired.
