Director

André Forcier

Born in Montreal in 1947, he directs his first 8mm short film while still in high school. Gilles Carle noticed «La mort vue par …» and it was broadcasted on Radio Canada. Forcier shots his second short film in 1967, «Chroniques labradoriennes». His first feature film, «Le retour de l’immaculée conception» in 1971, expresses the worries of the young of Quebec. His first critical success was «Bar salon» (1972), where he works for the first time with his favourite thespian, Guy l’Ecuyer, and screenwriter Jacques Marcotte. «L’Eau chaude, l’Eau frette» was one of his biggest success.
