Biography

Porn video maker. Laurentians-bred hardcore wunderkind of the early 1990s, Duffault made four or more porn videos, popular both at home and with American consumers, most produced or distributed fully or in part by Montreal outfits such as Wega and Priape. Involved romantically with a US porn star, Duffault had a short but intense career, demonstrating a good feel for the passionate superficiality of the genre. He gave his work a unique Quebec stamp, whether with the billingualism run amuck of the early Au Maximum/French Erection (1992) or the hockey theme of Sure Shot (1994): “Do you wanna puck?” The promotional description for his Northern Exposures (1993) assured customers that the actors’ “sensuous accents will get you worked up” and that Les Hommes au Naturel (1995) went “In the far reaches of North America [where] there are wild men just dying to get action.” Duffault died of AIDS shortly after his final shoot.
