Since her studies at the Mel Hoppenheim school, Sophie has developed an intimate approach that leaves room for detours and adventure, bypassing the standards of a more educational and conventional cinema. After having produced I’ve Seen the Unicorn by Vincent Toi (Hot Docs and RIDM 2014), she moved on to directing with J’ai comme reculé, on dirait, a documentary essay completed as part of a residency at the Center de Création Outskirts of Paris. In 2017, she directed Claire l’hiver, her first fictional feature film. Sophie just finished L.A. Tea Time a feature-length documentary road movie that was shot in May 2018 between Montreal and Los Angeles, with the help of Telefilm Canada’s micro-budget program. In this third film, the director will try to have tea with Miranda July to ask her for professional advice.
