Canadian filmmaker Marie-Josée Saint-Pierre has just come back from the prestigious Cannes International Film Fest where her documentary Jutra was featured in the lineup of the 46th Director’s Fortnight – an honor not simply bestowed on any film.
The prestigious Cannes Film Festival just announced the selection of the short film «Jutra» directed and produced by Marie-Josée Saint-Pierre in coproduction with the NFB (Marc Bertrand).
"An original mix of animation and documentary, Jutra by Marie-Josée Saint-Pierre juxtaposes the two genres to push the boundaries of filmmaking. As such, it aptly illustrates how the NFB, on the eve of its 75th anniversary, continues to serve as a creative space where parallel worlds and uncommon visions can find their place and flourish.
– Claude Joli-Coeur, Acting Government Film Commissioner and Chairperson of the National Film Board of Canada "
