After he graduated from INIS in 2003, Yan left for Italy and Japan to assist François Girard on the film Soie. Since then, he has directed shorts presented at international festivals and numerous commercials. His first feature, Roche-Papier-Ciseaux, was selected as the opening film for the Rendez-Vous du Cinéma Québécois in 2013. Yan loves movie sets, actors, and technicians. He loves agencies that make him work hard and also, a bit, those who don’t yet.
