L'Esprit de L'Escalier. And You From Yours
Lynn Robinson tells her family’s immigrant story in her short film, And You From Yours (1993), a story of female immigrants uprooted from Quebec to the Northeast. The reviewer observes that the women in the story are self-voiced, which, and as a French Canadian herself, relates to the story and that by telling their individual stories, it becomes a collective memory [images]
