Lucie Lambert

Lucie Lambert spent her childhood in Portneuf-sur-Mer, on Québec’s North Shore, between forest and sea. Following her studies in litterature, she developed a passion for a free-form genre of filmmaking, mixing experimental with documentary. In 1991, with partners Sylvain l’Espérance and Pierre Marier, Lucie formed the production company Les films du tricycle allowing her the freedom to work as she pleased. Her favourite themes, whether in her films Paysage sous les paupières, Avant le jour, Le père de Gracile or in her most recent work, touch on the relationships between women, men and children and the territory they inhabit. Each film gives voice to characters whose life is inscribed with the memory of places. The stories exceed the framework of intimacy, reverberating in an overall understanding of human existence. Poetry gives colour to all her films. 

Lucie also produced the feature film La nuit, elles dansent, co-directed by Isabelle Lavigne and Stéphane Thibault, which screened at the Directors Fortnight, in Cannes in 2011.
