Director (s)

Director of Aboriginal and Italian origin, he aspired long time ago to the realization of a cinematographic work inspired by a reality of first nations in the Quebec region. Hence his third short film Powwow, a fiction filled with hope and for a culture that is his own. It was presented at “Not short on talent” at the Cannes Film festival in 2018.
