Claude Gagnon, A singular view

April 16th - May 11th, 2021

A filmmaker who is utterly unique in Quebec’s cinematic history. Starting in the 1970s, he expressed his singular perspective by travelling to Japan to direct Keiko, the story of an arranged marriage in parallel with a gay love story. He has built a coherent filmography, bringing fully realized directorial skills to explorations of marginal and complex situations, exposing social issues seldom seen in our films, including Indigenous issues (Visage pale, 1985) and the lives of people with disabilities (Kenny, 1987). Discover the work of a filmmaker who is still working, and in tune with our time.

“The paths people take, the very different directions they choose – that’s what fascinates me.”
Claude Gagnon
