Émilie Perreault reaches Salomé Villeneuve on the phone in Venice where she presents III, the only Canadian short film selected at the Venice International Film Festival. “In shock”, the director recounts her experience on the red carpet among the big names of the Mostra and talks about the power of childhood, a central theme in her work.
