Guy Rex Rodgers is a screenwriter and graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada.  He has worked extensively on multimedia productions in Canada, Europe and the USA and has also worked in documentary television as a writer and interviewer.

In 2020, on the 50th anniversary of Québec’s FLQ crisis, Guy Rex Rodgers began writing and directing a series of documentaries to examine the evolving sense of identity and belonging in Quebec’s minority English-speaking communities, interviewing dozens of Quebecers in six groups based upon waves of immigration.

His feature-length documentary entitled What We Choose to Remember opened the Hudson Film festival in May 2022, produced with the National Film Board’s Filmmaker’s Assistance Program.  The film has been invited to screenings in every region of Quebec, each session followed by a conversation with the audience about identity and belonging in Quebec.
