Alexandre Sheldon

A researcher, journalist and filmmaker, Alexandre is passionate about politics, history and social change. An international studies graduate, he enjoys getting lost in the maze of research to re-emerge with unusual treasures. He is constantly looking for the subtle threads from which we can weave meaning for this evermore complex world. He has directed multiple short documentary essays on sustainable urban development. He has also co-authored a book on tax evasion, published by Écosociété. As a videographer, he has directed more than twenty video projects for different groups and organizations. More recently, he began the production and development of two documentary projects at Rapide-Blanc: Algo, Polly & Turcot follows the story of two peregrine falcons living underneath the Turcot interchange in the St-Henri neighbourhood. His second project, Hacktivism MTL, offers an incursion into the Montreal hacker-activist community. His projects marry reflection with form, and intellectual rigor with an contemplative film-style.
