“We own a film production company here in Montreal. As a documentary filmmaker, I love having the chance to talk to people I would normally not have a chance to meet. I also love the chance we’ve had to go to many different parts of the world, as well as different worlds within your community that you didn’t know exist.
We usually tell stories about communities that are in our midst, but often we tell stories about people whose stories otherwise wouldn’t be told, illuminating them.
In an ideal world everyone would get their own story out, but sometimes there’s so much going on, it’s easy to get drowned out. Not everyone has the abilities, the tools, or the time. We try to work with people and get the story in a way that’s respectful to them.”
