Luc Beauchamp - Arthur's Paradise

We speak with Montreal director Luc Beauchamp - writer, director, and producer of the film Arthur’s Paradise.

Arthur’s Paradise is a unique film, a blend of documentary and fiction, with almost no dialog and music from opera to mariachi. At times beautiful, at times disturbing, it explores the solitary life of a farmer and his animals.

Luc Beauchamp received a degree in music composition from the Université de Montréal before working on a number of short films including the award-winning The Lion & the Lamb.

Skye Fitzgerald - Bombhunters

Director Skye Fitzgerald discusses his documentary Bombhunters and his work with his production company spinfilm.

In 1969, the US launched secret bombing raids into Cambodia in pursuit of the Viet Cong during the Vietnam war. Until suspension as part of peace agreements in 1973, over one billion pounds of ordnance were dropped on Cambodia.

Over thirty years later, much of that deadly ordnance is still scattered unexploded across the Cambodian countryside, where it is "harvested" by enterprising - and desperate - people.

Bombhunters is their story.
