One of the most controversial writers in Quebec history, Nelly Arcan pub­lished Putain (Whore) in 2001, causing a sensation in lit­erary circles with a tale of prostitution based on her own experience. With an unflinching approach, this film moves from one striking passage of the author’s oeuvre to the next, from elating highs to desperate lows, we are immersed in her lush and punishing world. (Steve Gravestock, TIFF)

Screens with Canada Top Ten short film Mutants - (16 min) – Dir: Alexandre Dostie.

FILM ARTICLE: “The result is that Nelly plays with the lies and half-truths of the author’s life at the same time that it depicts her on the precipice of her own vulnerability.” – Globe and Mail
