Julien Cadieux, filmmaker selected in conjunction with the story: Leprosy on Sheldrake Island
Congratulations to Julien Cadieux, the filmmaker selected in conjunction with the story Leprosy on Sheldrake Island!
After studying film production at Concordia University’s Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, Acadian filmmaker Julien Cadieux dedicated himself to directing and editing documentary films in New Brunswick.
His films bring together his interest for the arts and his admiration for the beauty of the people of his country. His first film, Habiter la danse (NFB), a portrait of a young Acadian dancer, takes stock of the dance scene in Acadie. His next film, Guilda : Elle est bien dans ma peau (SRC) is a journey into the complex universe of the famous transvestite. Fascinated by the beauty of the Acadian coastline, he also directed Le Chant du phare (SRC), a tribute to the coastal heritage and a call for its preservation. This theme is also at the heart of the two seasons of the documentary series Les Iles de l’Atlantique (SRC) that explores the many facets of island life. In addition, he directed the musical web series Laisser le bon temps rouler (TV5).
