Biography

After turning 30 and becoming a mother, Isabelle Lavigne turned her attention to a women’s world, making La nuit, elles dansent (At Night, They Dance). She remains as interested as ever in the intersections between social order and difference, observing a family of belly dancers who – by simply making a living – transgress against moral order.

Thanks to the time she invests and the trust she builds with her subjects, Isabelle Lavigne’s films take us inside dramatically rich microcosms, which she patiently explores in great depth. The result is real-life narratives that resemble fiction.

Filmography:
2011 La Nuit elles dansent
2008 Retour en Amérique
2008 JUNIOR
2002 Le 4125, rue Parthenais
1999 J.U.I.C.E
