Director: Anna Karina
The vérité spirit of the nouvelle vague lives on in this musical road movie, the latest feature from writer-director-star Anna Karina.
Karina's second directorial effort is strongly influenced by her experience performing live with French popster Philippe Katerine, who provides the soundtrack for this feature.
Two struggling musicians, trying to get by performing their less-than-sterling drag show, find a mysterious benefactor in the form of Victoria (Karina). Bankrolling a series of performances throughout Quebec, Victoria joins the duo on a haphazard tour along the St Lawrence River.
Financed independently by its producer, the film encapsulates the ‘on the fly' doctrine of nouvelle vague, drawing on direct sound, direct singing, real locations, a small crew and the actors' own wardrobes.
Producer Hejer Charf is a guest of the Festival.
