On the traces of Edmund Alleyn...
An insider's look on how art impacts life.
Inheriting her father's studio in 2005, Montreal-based filmmaker Jennifer Alleyn awakes after the funeral to find herself drawn to this intimate space, still exuding the artist's imagination. The film is an attempt to prolong the dialogue, to find the missing fragments of her father's life and understand this free thinker's mind. Edmund Alleyn was an intense and complex man of integrity who left his mark on Canadian art history.
