Notes about Marguerite

(sources)

Quote by the Director

"I was thinking about my grandmother and the difference between what her generation was born into and the generation I was born into. When it comes to women's rights, minority rights and the LGBTQ community, I realized my grandmother could not have had the same life I have—not that mine is all that exciting. It just came to me one day: what if this woman had been in love with another woman?"
-- Marianne Farley (source)

Quote by the Director [in French]

"Je n'ai pas la prétention d'avoir fait une différence avec Marguerite. Mais je sais que le court métrage a bouleversé beaucoup de gens. Et j'ose espérer que ça n'a pas bouleversé uniquement des gens de la communauté LGBTQ, mais aussi ceux de la communauté hétérosexuelle qui, peut-être, portent encore un certain jugement."
-- Marianne Farley (source)
