From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Pierre Falardeau (born on December 12, 1946 in Montreal) is a Quebec film and documentary director, intellectual, pamphleteer and noted radical activist for Quebec independence.


Falardeau studied anthropology at university; he was briefly a teacher of the subject. In the 60's, he got involved in the independentist Rassemblement pour l'indépendance nationale. A passionate believer in the struggle for Quebec independence, something that is present in most of his films, his interests also lie in many international struggles for national independence and decolonization; this brought him notably to film a documentary on the Algerian people. He occasionally publishes in the Le Couac independent newspaper.

A well known trait of his is his mixing of intellectual reflection with a popular joual and sometimes coarse language. Partly because of the direct, colourful, sardonic and explosive nature of his style, he is often sought after for on-air opinions by the media.
