Biography

A graduate of UQAM in filmmaking, Guillaume Harvey is fascinated by cinema’s diverse array of narrative possibilities. In 2015, he directed the short A Bomb, which was seen and enjoyed in festivals around the world. An eclectic designer and screenwriter, Marc-André Charpentier likes to look at society’s problems from a distanced point of view.
