Martine Chartrand, who was born in Montreal, studied social sciences and graphic arts at Ahuntsic College, then fine arts at Concordia University. She joined the NFB officially as a colour artist. After obtaining a teaching certificate while continuing to work as a poster designer and illustrator, she directed her first film (T.V. Tango, 1992).

Black Soul (2000; 09’47) is a poetic film about memory. It is an exhilarating immersion into the heart of Black culture via a whirlwind voyage through the defining moments of Black History. As an old lady initiates her grandson into his past, a series of perpetually transforming images painted directly under the animation camera unfolds before our eyes.
