Sophie Lambert’s productions have always left a strong, individual mark on the screen; even her first short films, which were shot during the Course autour du monde in the early 90s, decidedly bear her signature. This includes her most recent projects, whether it be the miniseries L’amour au temps du numérique, which garnered over a million views on the Télé-Québec platform, or more recently the Le Vrai Nouveau monde miniseries presented by Radio-Canada and her three most recent movies, 2 mètres, Encore 2 mètres, and Je croyais en toi. She has now been making her mark as a thought-provoking documentary maker for over 20 years. Sophie captures life in her own distinctive way and with a level of empathy which can be felt through the screen. Moving an audience over important topics with an underlying and keen sense of humanity, authenticity and audaciousness is what she does best.
