Retour sur deux films coup de poing

Jimmy Larouche’s LA CICATRICE and Yan Lanouette Turgeon’s ROCHE PAPIER CISEAUX.

Two directors who typically make small-to-medium budget films. Two directors whose first features have been highly covered by the media. Two directors who share an affinity for subtly directing actors, and for the courage to shoot in Quebec outside Montreal! A 45-minute discussion primarily focused on their work and relationships with actors. Jimmy has written and directed nine acclaimed shorts that have appeared in several festivals across the world. In the fall of 2010 he directed his first feature film entitled LA CICATRICE, a psychological thriller starring Marc Béland and Patrick Goyette that was in competition at the Busan International Festival and Festival du nouveau cinéma. In 2003, Yan Lanouette Turgeon graduated from the “cinema-profil réalisateur” program at Inis, completing four short films including PEDIGREE, for which he earned the Fondation Claude Jutra bursary. Furthermore, this filmmaker has degrees in communication and psychology from New York State’s Clarkson University. His short productions PAPILLON NOIRS and LE REVENANT have been screened in several international festivals. In 2006, he travelled to Japan and Italy as personal assistant to Francois Girard during the director’s shooting of SILK. He has since directed several advertisement films for production house 6ix Degrés – La Cavalerie as well as gained notoriety for directing the first season of the webseries 11 RÈGLES, winner of the webfiction jury prize at the WebTV-Festival in La Rochelle. He directed his first feature, ROCHE PAPIER CISEAUX, in 2012, co-written with screenwriter André Gulluni.
