Thursday, June 22, 6:30-9:00 pm
The multi-disciplinary artist collective Isabelle’s Angels launches their film Isabelle Walks With Angels, while acclaimed Montreal author Norman Nawrocki and visual artist Ivan R. (also members of the collective) launch their new artbook, Isabelle Walks With Angels, A Montreal Urban Legend, on Thursday June 22nd, 2023 at le MAI, Montréal, arts interculturels, 3680 Jeanne-Mance, Montréal.
Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Two screenings: 7:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

Directed by Naomi Silver-Vézina (aka, Naomi SV), the film is based on Nawrocki’s extraordinary magical realist short story of the same name. It blends theatre, dance, animation and visual art to tell a compelling tale about a despairing woman who meets an all-women biker gang. The text in the gorgeous full colour 84 page book is embedded in a collection of powerful illustrations, collages and paintings of Montreal by Ivan R.
Advance praise for the book:
“A remarkable tale capturing the brutal labyrinth of life of the streets in cinematic prose and stunning art.” – David Lester, artist of 1919: a graphic History of the Winnipeg General Strike.
