Émilie B. Guérette (Canada)

Émilie B. Guérette is a nomadic filmmaker whose roots are in Montreal and heart in Rio de Janeiro. She travels the world with her camera to shoot documentaries related to social justice, human rights and migrations. Her multidisciplinary background in anthropology, political science, poetry and music is reflected in her socially engaged, sensitive and sensory approach, taking the side of those left behind. She sees documentary as an art of the encounter which aims at building bridges between human beings.
