Ste. Anne

Director: Rhayne Vermette (Métis) Year: 2021 Run Time: 80min

Four years after leaving her daughter (d’Eschambault) to be raised by her brother (Theis) and his wife (Marion), Renée (Vermette) returns to find an entirely different life from the one she left behind. The tensions caused by her arrival simmer under the surface as Renée clumsily adjusts back into a maternal role despite her young daughter having no memory of her.

Featuring members of Vermette’s own family and community, this lovingly made personal project went on to win Best Canadian Feature at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2021.

“More experiment than straight-ahead narrative, Ste. Anne rewards patient, careful attention. The rewards are great.” – Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail
