Martine Asselin

For nearly ten years now, Martine Asselin has been suffering from a chronic illness: video compulsion. Her versatility covers script writing, directing, filming, editing and exploring genres, from documentary to art video via animation and fiction. She loves to travel, camera over her shoulder, filming both her social concerns and her whims. She shows her work pretty much everywhere, sometimes wins awards and like many people, puts her heart into everything she does. She is working on several independent documentary projects, while giving free rein to her creativity in the Kino group of video makers. She has her own production company, Sens Crupule, which often produces or co-produces her creations, and she is also an active member of Vidéo Femmes. This year at the Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montréal (RIDM) she is presenting Symphonie Locass, co-directed with Marco Dubé, and Petite histoire de métro.

Patite Historie de Metro. In the subway from the indifferent crowd, life meets mine. Here's the story of this meeting, which upset me and that leaves no one indifferent.
