Featuring two films from the Faces of series, an ongoing project by director Valérie Lanciaux. These films are atypical and poetic documentaries that seek to reveal the soul of locations through the voices and faces of women who live there.
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 Peoples Theater. This experience inspired Valérie to discover more about the area, which she now considers a second home.
Her next film The Faces of Paris will premiere at the Portage Center for the Arts on July 29.
