Aloise and Rak (Cancer)

In Wheeler Auditorium

Admission: $2.50

Featured at the September 1976 Second International Festival of Women's Films in New York, Liliane de Kermadec's Aloise centers around the extraordinary performance of Delphine Seyrig portraying the “true and tragic story of a sensitive young woman who has a nervous breakdown at the start of World War I and remains in an insane asylum for the rest of her life. After forty years of despair, she reconstructs a world for herself by creating a series of remarkable paintings, which capture the attention of the art world.”
