Confined to a room for ten years, Ines’ mother has lost all contact with reality. Her daughter tries to dialogue with her while maintaining a disturbingly fusional relationship with her father, a shadowy man, more ambiguous than protective. Pushed to emancipate herself by this silent father, the young girl multiplies experiences, confusedly searching for who she is.
As part of the Cinéastes cœur à cœur series, we have invited Renée Beaulieu to select one of her favourite films from the contemporary Canadian cinema repertoire. She has chosen Kristina Wagenbauer’s SASHINKA.
