Alice Andanack was born to an Inuit mother and Québecois father. She is an art dealer, but also a young woman with an uncommon social rage. Educated yet wild, she talks to ghosts and decides to avenge the religious and colonial heritage that was imposed on her mother’s people. She tries to understand the origins of vengeance.
With her sister, we follow Alice on her quest for survival and meaning, between Québec, Manhattan, Venice and the Vatican. She steals art and tries to finds answers to her questions. Stealing Alice is an ode to love, vengeance and solitude, a story of rage and beauty.
It was shot in many countries over a period of eighteen months and features Fanny Mallette and Denys Arcand. This will be the first screening in the US.
Stealing Alice is the first feature film written and directed by painter and author, Marc Séguin.
