Queen of Chaos

by Kaila Bolton, 2020 (Canada)

Canada | 14 min | Original Version, English and French Subtitles

Therese, in her home buried with objects, carries out a work of decluttering, which is as much material as therapeutic. It is easy to get attached to this protagonist, who presents her intimacy and opens up about her life with lightness and humor. Refreshing, this short film offers a frank and warm look at marginality and mental disorders.


Director Kaila Bolton completed a Master’s degree in Visual Anthropology at the University of Aarhus in Denmark after obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology at McGill University.


This engaging short film has been screened at several festivals, including the FIN Atlantic International Film Festival in Halifax, Ethnofest: Athens Ethnographic Film Festival in Athens, Charlottetown Film Festival and Her International Film Festival in Ireland.

Following the screening, a discussion will be held with the protagonist of the film Queen Of Chaos, Thérèse Bélisle, as well as the director of the film Interwoven, Ariel St-Louis Lamoureux, and possibly members of her team.
