Clémence Desrochers - Clémence Among the Gods

Clémence Desrochers - Clémence Among the Gods

| 6 min

Director Philippe Baylaucq captures Clémence Desrochers in total candidness, as she recounts her childhood and career as a writer, broadcaster, singer and actress. Inspired by life's most ludicrous aspects, her work has trampled barriers of decorum and tackled everything from menopause to suicide, all in the service of laughter and connection. This film was produced for the 2009 Governor General's Performing Arts Award.
