Stefan Pleszczynski

Stefan Pleszczynski made his feature debut with L'Esperance, a drama set in a Quebec mining town. Prior to that, he directed the medium-length film L'Homme Perche aka The Old Man Who Wanted To Climb To Heaven, starring Marcel Sabourin, which enjoyed a six-week theatrical run, almost unheard of for a medium-length film. Stefan directed "The ol' Coco Bop" Season VII of Da Vinci's Inquest; "Isn't Very Pretty But You Can Smoke It" and "Put Down The Hose, Pick Up A Gun" for Da Vinci's City Hall; and "A Champagne Payday" and "Jimmy's Got A Money Machine" for Intelligence. Other credits include the British series, The Worst Witch and Weirdsister College. The Quebec-born Pleszczynski studied at BC's Simon Fraser University, where he made his first short, The Dragon, which won a major prize at the Canadian Student Film Festival.
