Nurturing a borderline obsessive admiration for filmmaker Miranda July, the young director Sophie Bédard-Marcotte sets off with her friend and cinematographer on a road trip to California, hoping to meet her idol. Through changing landscapes and multiple encounters along the way, a fascinating America emerges at a crossroads between the real and the fantastic. “L.A. Tea Time” is a free spirited and amusing work that echoes Chantal Akerman’s cinema, navigating us through an intimate and enthralling approach. (RIDM)
