Virgile Ratelle

Having grown up with the skateboarding community, Virgile Ratelle has always gravitated towards a camera and the idea of documenting the present moment. Oscillating between filming skateboarding and Nordic surfing, he decided to orient his future in cinema. He completed his bachelor's degree in visual production at UQAM in 2021 with his graduation film Lost Dans l'Paradise, which had have great success at a number of festivals in Quebec and internationally. He nestles in a "neo direct cinema" documentary cinema and confirms his refined and amorous style with Summer Nights (2022), when he captures the intimacy of two best skateboarding friends, during the summer of their 15 years.
