Imelda, the amused and incorruptible old lady, is back! This second film takes place eleven years before the first one, in the Fall of 2001 in the village of Gentilly where Martin Villeneuve and his older brother Denis grew up. Martin takes up once again the role of Imelda, his paternal grandmother, at age 90. Robert Lepage plays the notary, Imelda’s son.

Martin Villeneuve first stood out in advertising through Sid Lee and Cirque du Soleil. In 2012, he launched his first feature film, MARS & AVRIL, adapted from his eponymous graphic novels. This film, which had its world premiere in Karlovy Vary and opened the FOCUS section at FNC, received 10 nominations, including one for Best Adapted Screenplay at the Canadian Screen Awards. So far, Martin is the only Québécois to have given a TED Talk. In 2014, he won an award for his performance in IMELDA, for which he recently shot two sequels starring Robert Lepage and Ginette Reno
