Biography

Anne-Marie Bouchard lives and works in Québec City. She has been making videos since 1999. Her films are an experimental, avant-garde experience—impressionistic and evocative: a cinema of poetry. She is a seeker of images, a discoverer of sounds, an explorer of cinema and media art, her work intimate and eclectic and artisanal. Her films delve into the ephemeral and the fragile, gesture and disappearance. She is interested in the impact colour and sound have on the emotive body, and in revealing the aesthetic potential in images of the everyday.
