About this Episode
Andre Turpin is a filmmaker with a capital F. Not afraid to get his hands dirty, and also not afraid of being a genuine artist, Andre genuinely loves what he does and loves the craft of film. One mark of a real artist is a demonstration of their ability to develop and change their style and choices as time goes by. When you look at the growth of Andre’s work from the brilliant “Maelstrom” to “Incendies”, you can see an artist determined to push himself and his work, and that quality, combined with technical expertise and a genuine passion make Andre Turpin a unique talent.
