The real cruise (and the arrest) of Isabelle Lagacé
Testimony without filter
“At the beginning, I was not inclined to participate in the series, she says during a table media round to which Metroattended earlier this week. But over time, I developed trust [in the team]. I saw that the goal was not to tear me down, as the media has already done enough. »
Director Sébastien Trahan says that the filming took place over eight days of around six to seven hours of interviews, which made it possible to “go deep into the psychology of 'Isabelle'.
The latter remembers being very reserved during the first interviews, before becoming more and more comfortable. “In the end, I revealed much more than I expected. Going back to her memories has even served her as a kind of therapy, she says.
Today today, the young woman says she is proud of this series in which she explains how she found herself in such a situation: debts, toxic relationships, depression, unhealthy nightlife, etc. She was an ideal target for recruiters.
Isabelle hopes that this series will help some people possibly in a situation similar to hers not to repeat the same mistakes. She also wants to show that a second chance is possible. The experience of losing everything and ending up in prison allowed her to do a lot of introspection and she considers today that she has grown over this ordeal.
The Cocaine series, jail & likes: Isabelle's true story will be available on Crave from December 2.
