Sound On Sight Radio #243: Director Denis Villeneuve

- Advertisement -

Quebec director Denis Villeneuve  has been ubiquitous here in Canada since 2000, when he released his breakthrough feature, the strange, vivid and colorful Maelstrom, which swept that year’s Genie Awards. He returned, audaciously, with Polytéchnique, a dramatization of the infamous 1989 school shooting that occurred at the institution of the same name, and he’s back again with Incendies, a critically acclaimed adaptation of a play by Wajdi Mouawad that concerns history, fate and tragedy as it connects a thinly veiled version of early-80s Lebanon with present-day Montreal.
