Iolande Cadrin-Rossignol has been involved in various capacities in the Quebec film industry. After advanced studies in theater and music, she worked in radio and television. She then dedicated herself to screenwriting, production, and directing numerous cinematic works that have always reached a wide audience. In the meantime, she became a producer at the National Film Board, director of external production at Radio-Canada, and interim director of the Cinémathèque québécoise for nearly four years. Since 1999, her most significant works, centered around astrophysicist Hubert Reeves, have revealed her ability to create captivating scientific content with Conteur d'étoiles and Du Big Bang au Vivant. With La Terre vue du cœur — avec Hubert Reeves," she openly expressed her own ecological commitment, which had, in fact, been the driving force behind her first foray into cinema in 1973. In a similar vein, in L’Océan vu du cœur, co-directed with Marie-Dominique Michaud, she offers an even broader vision of the state of biodiversity and climate on the planet.
