Director Biography - Stefan Morel

Stefan is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, photographer and cinematographer.
Through his films which have reached Canadian and International audiences, Stefan’s intuitive understanding of story elicits an evaluation of shared consciousness, of individual purpose, and a sense of belonging. He takes great care to respect the tone of each character's unique perspective.

As the director, cinematographer and editor of “Herd” - a documentary about the healing symbiosis between humans and horses - Stefan drew from his experience as an equestrian to connect with the rhythm of the herd. “Herd” premiered at the 2017 San Diego Film Festival and won Best Documentary and Best Cinematography at the 2017 Montana Equus Film Festival.

His documentary “Blind Spot; Moments Unseen” follows three blind adventurers who journey by horseback into the heart of the Andes. Broadcast on the CBC/Documentary Channel to rave reviews, the film received 4 nominations at the 2016 Canadian Screen Awards, and won best “International Doc” at the 2016 Equus Film Fest in NYC.

Director Statement

My compositional eye answers blindly to instinct.
I search for an image that I can’t see, yet I know is there: a frame that my camera reveals.
I follow an artistic path that leads my lens to a visible subject, with the hope of finding the invisible.
My eyes tell me where I am, whereas my images show me what I’ve found.
