Director Philippe Falardeau talks about his new film Monsieur Lazhar
A while back, Philippe Falardeau went to the theatre... and he came out with a movie. The play was "Bashir Lazhar" by Evelyne de la Chenelliere. It's the story of an Algerian immigrant who steps in to teach a Grade 6 class in a school in downtown Montreal, after a teacher commits suicide.
Falardeau joins Susan to talk about his latest film, which is already receiving wide critical acclaim.
