Benjamin Hogue studied cinema at the Université de Montréal. His first documentary feature, Lemoyne, an exploration of the work and flamboyant life of the painter Serge Lemoyne, was hailed by the critics and shown in a number of festivals and events across Canada and on the Bravo! television network. His second film, Le chômeur de la mort, a portrait of the poet Claude Péloquin, was an experiment in a fragmentary style of documentary, mixing forms in a manner influenced by the tradition of cinéma direct. Benjamin Hogue is presently working on a documentary feature about the poet and politician Gérald Godin.
