If the wind spoke the language of children, what would its voice be?

Biography

Questioning contemporary notions of identity and migration, Montrealer Édith Jorisch writes and directs fiction and documentary films. Her documentary The Heir won two Geminis, in addition to being screened and broadcasted around the world. In 2019, her short film AWE stood out with its hybrid style, skillfully flirting between fiction and documentary. Tibbits Hill, short narrative film, is an allegorical fable about music as an anti-militaristic weapon, produced in collaboration with a children's choir and composer Alexandra Stréliski. Édith now devotes herself to writing her first feature, Parand.
