After taking part in the 1996-1997 edition of La Course destination monde, Danic Champoux directed several award-winning documentaries; among them, My Father (2000), Caporal Mark (2006), La couleur du temps (2008), and Baklava Blues (2009). He followed up with an animated film (Mom and Me, 2011) and a feature-length documentary (Sessions, 2012). Named Filmmaker-in-Residence at the NFB, he devoted two years to Self(less) Portrait (2014). Since then, he divides his time between film and television, where he has been multiplying projects (Mal élevés; Mon amour, ma prison). La fille du cratère, co-directed this year with Nadine Beaudet, has allowed him to pay homage to the documentarian Pierre Perrault, who once fueled his desire to become a filmmaker and who remains to this day a great source of inspiration to him.
