Director Marie-Pier Dupuis

Marie-Pier Dupuis graduated from UQAM in 2016 and has been editing documentary and fiction films ever since. She has always been drawn by narrative structures in which form and content converge. Recently her interests—poutine, microwaved coffee and Quebec reality TV—have led her to screenwriting and directing. Produced by Némésis Films in summer 2022, L’été des chaleurs is Dupuis’ first short film.
