Sofia Bohdanowicz's La Maison du Bonheur (The House of Happiness) was named Best Canadian Documentary by the Vancouver Film Critics Circle in 2017.
A Franco-Ontarian filmmaker goes to Paris to meet an astrologer who has lived in the same house for many decades. She follows her in her daily routine, as she tells him about her life, her job, her love of flowers and coffee. Made of small bittersweet vignettes.
“Bohdanowicz allows herself to be guided by an older generation of women, personally and cinematically, allowing their influences to enrich her work ” Chelsea Phillips-Carr, POV Magazine.
The film will be preceded by a short film by Sofia Bohdanowicz.
