After starting his career in documentaries, Charles Binamé moved into advertising. Today, directing feature films and television series takes up most of his time. He directed his first film, Un autre homme, in 1991 and followed it with the series Blanche. Next came C'était le 12 du 12, Chili avait les blues and Eldorado. After another series, Marguerite Volant, he directed the films Le Coeur au poing (Streetheart) and La beauté de Pandore (Pandora's Beauty). 2001 marked his return to documentary with Gauvreau (2005 Jutra winner for Best Documentary). Un homme et son péché set a new box office record in 2002. He then directed Maurice Richard (winner of nine Genies in 2007, including Best Achievement in Direction). The film was a hit with critics and public alike and was selected for the Tokyo Festival. In 2006, he received the Jutra Award for Best Documentary for Gilles Carles ou l’indomptable imaginaire. Le piège américain, his latest feature, staring Rémy Girard in the role of the well known criminal Lucien Rivard, will be released in May 2008. He has directed English-language projects such as Hunt for Justice (winner of the 2006 Gemini for Best Movie), and the mini-series H20 and Trojan Horse. Charles Binamé's many award-winning films and miniseries have been featured in prestigious international festivals.
