Amélie Hardy


Myriam Payette

Between loads of laundry at the corner laundromat, Cooper shares the story of her gender reassignment journey. Piecing together her memories, from her childhood in a small fishing village through her tumultuous medical process, Cooper attempts to make peace with the last male imprint remaining on her body: that annoying deep voice that sticks to her skin.

Director, Hello Stranger

After completing her film studies at Montreal’s University, Amélie directed several short films. Her documentary style is defined by humanity, aestheticism, and a distinctive staging style. Amélie’s projects (About Memory and Loss, Ordinary’s Life Chronicles, Happy Life, Train Hopper) have earned her several awards and have brought her to festivals around the world.
