Synopsis

Portrait of Queen Kristina of Sweden, raised as a boy by her father. From the outset, she opposed the very conservative Lutheran traditions in force in her country. A friend of Descartes and Pascal, she disturbed the elites as much by her inclination for Enlightenment philosophy as by her love of women and her categorical refusal to marry.

Mika Kaurismäki

Mika Juhani Kaurismäki (born 21 September 1955) is a Finnish film director.

Michel Marc Bouchard

Born in 1958, Michel Marc Bouchard grew up in Lac Saint-Jean. It was there that he staged his very first play, Scandal, in 1975. He then went on to study theater at the University of Ottawa and worked with several French Ontario theatre companies. In 1983, his play La contre-nature de Chrysippe Tanguay, écologiste, was shown at the Théâtre d'aujourd'hui in Montreal, which was a turning point in his career. The many plays he has written since then have often been translated and performed internationally. In Quebec, Michel Marc Bouchard has collaborated with the greatest directors, such as André Brassard and Brigitte Haentjens. He himself has written the screenplay for several film adaptations of his works, including John Greyson's Les Feluettes, Sophie Lorain's Les grandes chaleurs and Xavier Dolan's* Tom à la ferme*.
