Laura Bari

Originally from Argentina, self-taught filmmaker Laura Bari currently resides in Montreal. Fascinated by singularity and difference, she chose film as a way to merge arts, culture and mental health. ANTOINE (2009), her first full-length film, about the imaginary life of a blind boy, was shown at some 30 festivals around the world, winning 15 prizes. Her second film, ARIEL (2013), is about a man who rebuilds his identity after a terrible accident. PRIMAS completes her trilogy, revealing once again the power of imagination through her unique artistic approach, Bari pushes the boundaries between the real and the unreal.
