| Since the beginning of his career, this director/producer/screenwriter has earned prestigious awards for his body of work. His first feature film, La vie heureuse de LĂ©opold Z, captured the Grand Prix du cinĂ©ma canadien. Over the years, he has become one of the most prolific filmmakers of his generation. Some of his films have taken their inspiration from our cultural heritage. Les Plouffe, La Corriveau and Maria Chapdelaine offer a glimpse into our history and are destined to remain classics of Canadian film.
