“A Day in the Life” with Montréal Film Director Susanne Serres

Susanne Serres is a presence. A gentle reminder that we are stars. No wonder that with her first film, she decides to explore space. That of the galaxies certainly but also that of the infinitely powerful which is within. The only space where it is possible to hear the echo of our own unique little voice. The one who desperately seeks to express herself, to connect and to be. Our essence. Susanne is a continual act of presence that gets rid of conventions, fears, the superfluous. She is us. A “we” who has never forgotten that we are stars. Susanne is a journey deep within ourselves.

Susanne Serres – Film Director

Sometimes, a good dose of self-care is to just get up at 7 in the morning and take a walk in the park.

Being surrounded by creative friends is a bliss. Discovering art and music together is a feeling that never gets old.
A notebook and a matcha latte? Seems ordinary, right? But the number of film concepts / creative ideas that run in my head every time I go to a local café are endless…
Ah, some laughter after a good take on the set of Celestine. Such a pleasure to have worked with these two (Maxine Denis + Chanel Mings) and all of the team of Celestine.

What do you do?

I’m a film director. I also enjoy making portrait/fashion photography projects and some visual art paintings/drawings.

The post-production of Bloc 1 of my first feature film named Celestine. I will also begin prep + prod of Bloc 2 of my first feature soon enough… In terms of ‘’what’s next’’ in my career, I’m also developing my second feature film that will deal with mental health issues within a queer love story.
