DOCUMENTARY ON LOUISE LECAVALIER

Last winter, shooting wrapped up for a documentary on Louise Lecavalier directed by Raymond St-Jean and produced by Michel Ouellette (producer of two other films spotlighting the dancer). Illustrated by dance scenes recreated especially for the camera, the film is a mosaic-like, close-up portrait of the artist, who mines her own life to nourish her art, through joys, encounters, friendships, and challenges. Entitled Louise Lecavalier – In Motion, the film premiered in September at the Quebec City Film Festival and in October at the Vancouver International Film Festival. Theatrical release on March 30, 2018 in Montreal, Quebec city and Sherbrooke. The film was named the ex-æquo winner of the prize for Best Dance Film of the Year by the French professional association of theatre, music, and dance critics on June 18, in Paris.
