Laurence Turcotte-Fraser

Laurence Turcotte-Fraser is an emerging filmmaker first known for her short film Domino (Regards 2018), as well as her director of photography work (L’étrange province, Les Jaunes, Blast Beat). Her first feature-length documentary, The End of Wonderland(2021), was released theatrically in Canada and travelled internationally (IDFA, RIDM, OUTFEST LA, BFI FLARE). This eccentric portrait of erotic artist Tara Emory allowed her to explore her love for direct cinema and to find a human approach both in front of and behind the camera. With her second feature film Evicted City, co-directed with Priscillia Piccoli, she continues her documentary artistic approach by scrutinizing the housing crisis in her home city, Montreal.
