Summary

With a career spanning more than five decades, director and cinematographer Michel Brault is one of the most influential figures in Queacute;beacute;cois cinema. Brault's early works, including Les Raquetteurs and Pour la suite du monde, reflect a previously unacknowledged and unfulfilled need on the part of Queacute;beacute;cois society to see its own culture depicted onscreen, and helped spark a cultural renaissance in Quebec. His 1974 fiction featureLes Ordres, which deals with the Quebec Liberation Front crisis and the invocation of the War Measures Act, has consistently been listed as one of the best Queacute;beacute;cois and Canadian films to date. Brault's work as cinematographer-on groundbreaking films such as Claude Jutra'sMon oncle Antoine(1971) and Francis Mankiewicz'sLes Bons Deacute;barras(1980)-and his contributions to the development of the cinema-veriteacute; movement, have been equally significant.
