After studying international journalism, Catherine Hébert took her first long trip through West Africa, a journey that inspired a strong desire to make documentaries and explore the continent. She went on to make numerous documentary reports and films, from Uganda to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, along with India and Bangladesh. Her deep interest in human rights, history and politics is the cornerstone of her work. The Other Side of the Country (2008), a film about the war in northern Uganda, earned critical acclaim and was selected by numerous festivals. With Notes on a Road Less Taken, the filmmaker presents her most personal film to date, told in the form of a quest for stories. She is currently working on a new film, Dis-moi ce que tu manges (Tell Me What You Eat), examining the dysfunctional food system, which produces malnutrition in both the north and the south.
