Brenda Keesal follows her own road. Her wicked, emotionally charged work lights up every screen. Her first film WANKER won a Silver Plaque at the Chicago Film Festival, was the Closing Film of the New Orleans Film & Video Festival, garnered cult status and rave reviews and was voted one of the best movies of the year in Canada.

Her second: the polarizing, critically-acclaimed JACK & ELLA played in festivals all over the world, enjoyed sold-out runs in Toronto and Montreal and still plays on Canada’s top movie channels and Roger’s On-Demand.

Brenda is currently blogging, drawing and juggling multiple projects, in a multi-culti café in Montréal.
