The film project

The film is a recreation of Victoria, a work originally created in 1999 for the stage, by Dulcinea Langfelder, pioneer of interdisciplinary art. Victoria has toured in more than 15 countries, in 8 languages, for over 20 years! In creating the show, Dulcinea Langfelder wanted to find a way to talk about old age, loss of autonomy… and death, that would be neither morbid, frightening, nor depressing.

For years, Dulcinea has been asked to produce a film version of the show. Now it will be immortalized for generations to come as part of  Quebec’s artistic heritage. 

TO BE RELEASED IN 2022!

Logline

Having lost her memory, 90-year-old Victoria lives intensely a present intermingled with memories and imagination, humour and fantasy.

Synopsis

Victoria has lost her memory. In her world, time does not exist; memories are as real as the present. A shadow of herself, Victoria is like a stage performer who’s forgotten her role; a kind of puppet, adapting herself to comic, dramatic and poetic situations as they present themselves. The orderly that takes care of her seems at times to be a friend, an adversary, her father, son, brother, lover… while her wheelchair becomes her rocking chair, her prison, her tango partner and even a flying chariot.
