Speaking with Stone documentary

Rodolphe Caron directed the documentary Marie Hélène Allain, Speaking with Stone with the National Film Board of Canada.

Marie Hélène Allain is a nun and a professional artist who sculpts stone into works of palpable life force. Deeply attached to her art, she describes how she communes with the material from which she creates such surprising, sensual pieces. Marie Hélène Allain Speaking With Stone recounts the unusual career of this Acadian artist who has united her spirituality with her art, without sacrificing the quality and intensity of one in favour of the other.

N.B. The documentary is only available in French at the moment.
