Biografi

Pierre Perrault was born in Montreal in 1927. He had initially intended to be a lawyer and studied law faculty in Montreal and Paris. After working for Radio-Canada, he made a debut in film at the National Film Board with Michel Brault in Pour la suite du monde (1963), a classic of direct cinema. More than a documentary, it was a portrait of a people, a saga that won its directors recognition throughout the French-speaking world.
In his films, Perrault concentrated on men who reveal themselves through their language, and through their acts primarily having to do with daily life, work and survival. He often uncovered the myths underlying their activities, including hunting: La Bête lumineuse/ The Shimmering Beast (1982) takes us into a fantastic world, giving us a glimpse of the fear that underlies the boasting of hunters.
Perrault's highly poetic and philosophical work enjoys retrospectives held regularly all over the world. Along with his filmmaking, he has produced a remarkable literary oeuvre: collections of poetry, plays, annotated transcriptions of his films, etc.
Throughout his career, Perrault received numerous awards and honours for both his writing and his films. After his death in 1999, his widow, Yolande Simard-Perrault, established the Pierre et Yolande Perrault award, given each year in Quebec and Europe to support young talent in arts and communication (cinema, literature, radio).

“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.
