After several awarded works in fiction (Le mouchoir de poche, Jour de congé et Aline), Carole Laganière focuses mainly on documentary, a genre that allows her to combine social and artistic preoccupations. In 2002 and 2003, with La fiancée de la vie and Un toit, un violon, la lune, the filmmaker wins successively Best Documentary at Toronto’s Hot Docs. Vues de l’est (2004), L’Est pour toujours (2010), then Absences (2013), which involves the director’s mother and her Alzheimer’s disease, all confirm the maturity of an artist who has got a loving and incisive eye. In 2014, she directs and produces Des adieux, on the end-of-life in a palliative care house, then Un printemps incertain, a fictional short movie inspired by the film Des adieux in 2015. In 2017, she completes Quartiers sous tension, on the gentrification phenomenon, then continues with Sylvie à l'école, in 2018, the portrait of a school teacher and her unusual class.
