Biography

After studying film at Laval University, his documentary filmmaking experience began in 2002 with the film Dying Offshore, which reflects the concerns of the Gaspé fishers of groundfish and Maudite machine! a human portrait of the universe of compulsive gamblers in the video poker lottery. In 2004, his film Make money, hi good evening! on the subject of berylliosis workers at the Noranda mine in Murdochville earned him the Audience Award and the Enviro Award at the Portneuf Film Festival on the Environment. He then continues with Leander Bergeron, with hopeless conviction (2008), a meeting with the nonconformist of a man, unshakeable in his desire for freedom and his struggle for the defense of his social, political and family.
