Gilles Carle ou l'indomptable imaginaire
A documentary by Charles Binamé
Jutra Award Best Documentary 2005

Gilles Carle, the prolific director of such movies as La vraie nature de Bernadette and Maria Chapdelaine, has been struggling against Parkinson’s disease with dignity for about fifteen years.

Based on Carle’s last script completed in 2000, entitled “Mona MC Gill et son vieux père malade,” Charles Binamé’s documentary, which took slightly over two years to film, gives us a friendly, penetrating look of a brave, lucid creator confronted with suffering and the perspective of death. Although the subject is grave, we see a stong will to live and to create. A movie shrouded in all the light and love of Chloé Ste-Marie, the famous director’s companion of 25 years.

Gilles Carle ou l'indomptable imaginaire Charles Binamé has started his career in the seventies. The documentaries he directed at the time, sketches of Pierre Vallières, Denis Vanier and others, already bore his stamp. In 1993, he directed the series Blanche, a sequel to Les filles de Caleb, and it won him both the Gémeaux award for best directing and the FIPA d'or in Cannes.

Then came out one after the other the movies C'était le 12 du 12 et Chili avait les blues (1994) and Eldorado (1995). In 1996, he directed the series Marguerite Volant, followed by the movies Le coeur au poing (1997) and La beauté de Pandore (2000). In 2001, he was back to documentary filmmaking with Gauvreau ou l'obligation de la liberté. Un homme et son péché, his recent movie, beat the Canadian box-office record, with close to $10 million in revenue, which owed him the Billet d'or at the Jutra awards evening and the Bobine d'Or at the Genie Awards. In 2004, he made his first works in English: the miniseries H20 (CBC) and the "movie of the week" Hunt for Fustice (CTV) and shot a documentary on the moviemaker Gilles Carle. In 2005, he shot the movie Maurice Richard. Charles Binamé's films have been presented in prestigious international festivals and won many prizes.
