Luc Beauchamp - Arthur's Paradise (Reprise)

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.
