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 35 awards, in addition to earning over 200
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, USA and Vietnam.
