Biography

Serge Giguère is one of Quebec’s leading documentary filmmakers. Over the course of three decades and in 11 documentaries, he has forged an identity for documentaries in Quebec that reflects the collective consciousness. He began his career as a cinematographer, working on 60-odd films, before becoming a critically acclaimed director. He co-founded Les Films d’aventures sociales du Québec in 1974 and remained a partner until 1984, when he joined Sylvie Van Brabant to establish Les Productions du Rapide-Blanc. From 1998 to 2001, he was filmmaker-in-residence at the National Film Board of Canada. Mr. Giguère has sat on numerous juries and has been the recipient of many awards, including the Prix de l’Association québécoise des critiques de cinéma for best medium-length film of the year (1988, 1991, 1995), a Prix Gémeaux (1992), and a Prix Jutra (2007). Hot Docs devoted a retrospective to his work in 2006. Serge Giguère lives in Saint-Norbert-d’Arthabaska (QC).

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
