Atom Egoyan

Atom Egoyan, filmmaker: Atom Egoyan is part of the generation of writer-directors who emerged in the 1980s. Born to Armenian parents, he moved with his family at a very young age to Victoria, BC, an experience in cultural displacement he has often cited as a profound influence on his life and work. Recurring themes in Egoyan’s work such as alienation, voyeurism and the futile pursuit of emotional fulfilment can be seen as the director’s attempt to express the condition of cultural dislocation. His filmography includes Exotica (1994), The Sweet Hereafter (1997) and, Where the Truth Lies (2005).
