    There is no cost for the screening, but donations to support Ms Lanciaux’ project are appreciated. Concessions will be available for sale.  

The Faces of Lake Wisconsin is the new version of an ongoing project by director Valérie Lanciaux - an atypical and poetic documentary that seeks to learn more about southern Wisconsin through the voices and faces of the women who live there. The film brings together 17 women from 18 to 87 years old.         

Born in France, Valérie Lanciaux is a trained actor, filmmaker, and educator. In 2011 she was invited to Portage, Wisconsin to present her solo performance and run theatre workshops to children at the Zona Gale Young People’s Theater. This experience inspired Valérie to discover more about the area. “I fell in love with the region and the people. I decided I would also make a version of my (Faces of…) project series there. It was obvious.” 

There is no cost for the screening, but donations to support Ms Lanciaux’ project are appreciated. Concessions will be available for sale.  

The documentary lasts approximately 45 minutes and there will be time for Q&A with the director afterwards. For more about Valérie Lanciaux, and to view a trailer of the film, go to http://valerielanciaux.wixsite.com/mywork-val/the-faces-of
