As the choir prepares for an important performance, Gabrielle must confront other people’s prejudices with courage and overcome her own limitations.
“On the surface, it’s a simple love story: girl meets boy, girl likes boy, girl kisses boy. But Louise Archambault’s Gabrielle is much more…a deeply affecting tale of difference, dignity and the healing power of song.”
— T’cha Dunlevy, Montreal Gazette
Montreal-based Archambault achieved success with her short film Atomic Saké. Her first feature, Familia, won her the Canadian Screen Award for Best Debut Feature, and Gabrielle was nominated for six Canadian Screen Awards. Archambault also directed the TV series Catastrophe and wrote and directed Il pleuvait des oiseaux, which premiered at TIFF 2019. She is currently completing her next two features, Irena’s Vow and Le temps d’un été. Next she will write and direct My Camino.
