A nomadic filmmaker, Émilie B. Guérette has her roots in Quebec and her heart in Brazil. After studying Anthropology (Master EHESS/Paris) and Documentary filmmaking (INIS/Montreal), she chose documentary cinema as a weapon against injustice and as a love declaration towards the excluded of this world. Her first feature film The Other Rio, awarded in many festivals, delves in the daily life of the forgotten people of the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil. Her work seeks to shed light on marginalized populations and narratives. Combining social engagement and formal poetry, her sensitive and sensory approach aims at building bridges between human beings. The Hearing, co-directed with Peggy Nkunga Ndona, is his second feature documentary.
