Biography

Romy Boutin St-Pierre is an emerging filmmaker in fiction and documentary interested in social depolarization, cultural relativism and plurality of feminist perspectives. Bachelor in international relations and graduate in Arabic language, her interests in a diversity of perceptions led her to pursue her filmmaking experience in Quebec, Lebanon and Morocco. The exploration of sensuality is at the heart of her work, which focuses on the intimacy of fragile characters who go through a socially controversial situation, leading her audience to witness uncommon situations.
