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.

Taking the risk to show, and to expose the other part of himself, 'Jutra' is a moving plastic representation. The film goes beyond any form of known filmmaking. But it's still a documentary act, in the sense that the manipulation of archive sources create the objective apprehension of a man with multiple and inclassable personalities. Marie-Josée Saint-Pierre's short film is alive, complexe and exciting.
