Adriene Jenik

Mauve Desert is a film/video translation by Adriene Jenik
of Nicole Brossard's experimental novel of the same name.
Nicole Brossard is a celebrated Quebecoise writer.

Melanie is a fifteen year-old of the memory.
She steals her mother's Meteor every chance she gets and
drives away from her mother's lover Lorna and toward the dawn.

Maude Laures is the middle-aged academic who
stumbles upon Melanie's life in a second-hand bookshop
and traslates her into another tongue.

Adriene Jenik, a saturn-cycling video artist, brings the novel
from Montreal to the Southwest, from print to pyxel, from night
to day, and from one generation of women to another.
