Ste. Anne is an experimental film that observes a family and community through a lens that skews time and creates space for reflection and nostalgia. The scenes move between family gathering, time between a mother and daughter who are rekindling their relationship, and the land that they live on. The human relationships bring tension to the screen while the relationship with the land offers time for reflection and quiet. The narrative path in the film winds through the lives of the characters is never meant to reveal the story of their lives, but to give glimpses into the moments they live that straddle the line of fantasy and reality.
