Martine Asselin

In 1997, having just completed her studies, Martine Asselin left to make her first documentary by touring the world. Her nomadic side shows even in her approach, in that she moves easily between genres: documentary, fiction, experimentation, animation. No matter which subject she tackles, what interests her before all else is the human dimension: what people do, the challenges they face, their vision of the world, their motivations. Her documentaries lead us to meet genuine, often touching people, who make us question our assumptions or think about broader social issues. Her work is screened at festivals and on television.
