Portrait of Jenny Cartwright.

Jenny Cartwright explores themes of self-determination and inequality through topics such as gentrification, activism, work and poverty. It is through this bias towards the sidelined that she attempts to combine poetry and manifestos.

A versatile filmmaker, she single-handedly takes on the scriptwriting, directing, production and editing of her projects. Although she constantly questions forms of storytelling, moving from a classical form to experimental film and from installations to sound-based works, her practice remains resolutely documentary.

Her first feature-length documentary, I Remember a Time When No One Jogged in This Neighbourhood, won the REAL award from the Association des réalisateurs et réalisatrices du Québec in the art & essai category. [Soure: VOX, 2022]
