BEHIND THE SCENES : FREAKS OF NURTURE - ONF
Saturday, September 16, 4:30 PM
Concordia University, J.A. de Sève Theater, 1453 Mackay Street
Alexandra Lemay works on personal and collaborative film projects as a writer, director, fabricator and animator. Her selection by the National Film Board of Canada to be part of Hothouse apprenticeship program in 2014 led to the creation of her stop motion short, All the rage. The film has been featured in numerous festivals such as the Ottawa International Animation Festival, and received a nomination for best animated short by The Gala du cinéma québécois.
Alexandra takes us behind the scenes of her new short film Freaks of Nurture, currently in post-production at the NFB. Inspired by her own experiences and relationship with her mother, Alexandra created a comedy with a sensitive side, which deals with the theme of acceptance. Nearly twenty puppets were created for this ambitious project including adults, children, babies and animals, making for a beautiful parade of characters in this feast for the eyes.
