Originally from Argentina, self-taught filmmaker Laura Bari currently resides in Montreal. Fascinated by singularity and difference, she chose film as a way to merge Arts, cultures and mental health. Antoine (2009), her first full-length film, was shown at some thirty festivals around the world, winning 15 prizes. Her new opus Ariel (2013) is an intimate and metaphorical portrait of an Argentinean man rebuilding his identity after a terrible accident.
