Gabrielle Roy


The first feature length documentary is about one of Canada's most important woman of letters. A visual and intellectual delight, this film is a tribute to the highly acclaimed literary works and fascinating life of Gabrielle Roy.

Gabrielle Roy was a fiercely independent woman who defied her destiny and broke gender boundaries in post-war Canada. She was a modern writer and reporter ahead of her time.

Award-winning director Léa Pool (À corps perdu, Anne Trister, etc.) captures the fragility and greatness of Gabrielle Roy's life by travelling to the places that served as a backdrop for her singular journey.
