A playful and humorous universe of films conceals metaphor linked to the filmmaker’s difficult past in this mise en abyme where they step into the heels of atypical and non-conforming characters.
Mark Durand (Dnarum Kram) is a Canadian and neo-Gaspesian queer artist fascinated by the complexity of life and all art forms. Creating films encompasses many of his passions, including his need for adventure, his love and respect for nature, his connection with music, and his eternal quest for freedom. He is deeply inspired by the ocean and the richness of the Gaspe coast. For him, the result of a project isn't solely its outcome. His artistic approach has to always be open and absorbing, leaving space for the present moment in order to be surprised by the process. For Mark Durand, making art is a radical statement that depicts poetically the world that we live in.
