Érik Papatie lives in the Anishnabe Nation community of Lac Simon. Érik is gifted with a boundless imagination and he blends his passion for electronics and technology with his love of cinema. In his films, he uses electronic devices to tell dreamlike stories. He uses this common theme to take us through his community and show us snippets of life in Lac Simon. His four short films, Bienvenue dans mon monde (2010), Bienvenue dans mon monde II (2010), Glitch (2010) and Souviens-toi (2011) are explicit reflections of a dynamic, funny, creative personality that is full of life. Directing these films has helped him express himself and to reveal his world and vision of life as well as acquire positive recognition and interaction with the community, something that is not always easy for someone who is disabled. With his film Glitch, Érik was awarded the Audience Prize by Astral at its Annual Premiere in 2011.
