Biography

Director, scriptwriter. Concordia-trained, Montreal-based Simard presented in queer festivals her prizewinning Shave Your Legs (2001, 10) a well-crafted and evocative coming of age narrative about a young girl who encounters mortality in the shape of a dying grandmother, unwelcome gender socialization in the character of a stepsister who spends hours in the bathroom razor in hand, and, worst of all, betrayal in her best friend who discovers boys’ kisses—all one snowy winter.
