She has written and directed three feature documentaries, INSIDE LARA ROXX (2011), DEPROGRAMMED (2015) and DOPE EQUALS DEATH (post-production). She was the recipient of the prestigious Don Haig Award for outstanding achievement as an emerging filmmaker in 2012. Her films have been presented worldwide at film festivals, on TV broadcasts, theatrically and on digital platforms such as Netflix. In 2016 she wrote and directed her first virtual reality experience called DEPROGRAMMED VR (2016) which won the coveted IDFA DocLab Award for Digital Storytelling that year. She is currently in production on her second VR experience called WELCOME TO LINCOLN DETOX and her first narrative feature film called THE TOUCH OF HER FLESH.

Etienne Hansez

A former journalist and graduate of the Institut national de l'image et du son, Etienne Hansez founded Bravo Charlie in 2013. Producer of about ten short films, Etienne Hansez produced CHIEN DE GARDE, Sophie Dupuis' first feature film, chosen to represent Canada in 2018 in the category "Best Foreign Language Film" for the 91st Academy Awards. With his profile as a producer-scriptwriter, Etienne Hansez has turned project development into a real know-how. The loyalty of the filmmakers with whom he has worked for several years demonstrates a total complicity between the authors and the producer.
