Marco Joubert is a self-taught Canadian filmmaker and video artist,
with a background in architecture and visual arts. His audiovisual
practice, characterized by its formal rigor, tends toward the development
of a personal language, situated at the crossroads of cinema, video art,
poetry and philosophy.
Thematically, his work revolves around the specificity of the human condition:
the implications of our capacity to think and reason; the gap between material
comfort and our basic needs; the difficulty of communicating with others; and
the ever-looming presence of our mortality. It is about the creation of
otherworldly realities that still have the power to resonate with our common
experiences as human beings.
Professional experiences, film shoots, workshops, residencies or invitations
to festivals have brought him to Nebraska, Chicago, Prague, London, Ottawa,
Brussels, Spain, Los Angeles and Minsk. He has had the privilege to
collaborate with Marie Tifo, Pierre Curzi, Jean Marchand, Pauline Vaillancourt,
Wayne Horvitz and the National Film Board of Canada.
His works were rewarded by the attribution of 31 awards, in addition to
earning over 150 nominations; they were screened in the following countries:
Australia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, France,
Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kosovo, Mexico,
Peru, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and USA.
