Maïlis is a half French, half Canadian Montreal based director. She comes from a background in psychology and production design.
As a proud feminist, she is drawn to projects that empower women and provoke discussions. She firmly believes that as image makers, we are responsible for what we create and put into the world. Therefore, she hopes that her filmmaking practice will not only represent and amplify her voice as a woman but also others, thus nurturing a community.
To feed her artistry, she always navigates between strength and vulnerability. Her work is all about emotions and pairs a strong visual aesthetic with an effecting, emotional approach.
