Pierre Perrault was one of the most important filmmakers in Canada although largely unknown outside of Québec. He is credited with developing a unique “cinema of speech” that spoke directly about Québec, its land and its people. His work has had an enormous influence on a generation of younger filmmakers. Pierre Perrault studied law and went on to spend two years as a lawyer before moving to radio as an announcer. He was also a poet and dramatist.
