La Ruelle Films (formerly Productions de la Ruelle) is an award-winning documentary film production company based in Montreal, Quebec and led by Guylaine Maroist and Eric Ruel. La Ruelle not only produces feature-length documentaries and TV series, but also interactive digital projects and urban video projections. Thanks to the extensive research and rigorous work carried out by their multidisciplinary, experienced and extremely curious team, La Ruelle produces large-scale projects which offer new and powerful perspectives.

Backlash: Misogyny in the Digital Age, the latest film produced by La Ruelle, was released in September 2022 in Quebec. Directed by Léa Clermont-Dion and Guylaine Maroist, this feature-length documentary follows four women and one man whose lives have been turned upside down by cyberviolence. It officially became Quebec #1 box-office documentary in 2022, and broke record by also placing in the top 10 all-time at the Quebec documentary box-office. The film opened in France on October 4, 2023, and was shown in over 150 cinemas there. It has since been shown in 50 countries around the world.

The team is currently working on a new feature, Uncomfortable Truths (working title), which looks at a mysterious phenomenon that is causing a veritable scientific revolution.
