Meet the Amélie of Montreal
Patsy Van Roost has been charming Montreal's Mile End neighbourhood with her whimsical projects
In the same way the fictional movie character Amélie unwittingly involved her neighbours in a whimsical project that brought them all together, so does Patsy Van Roost in her Mile End neighbourhood in Montreal.
Inspired by a children's book about a lonely girl, Van Roost has been bringing strangers together by publicly posting excerpts of her writing that take them on scavenger hunts through her neighbourhood's streets.
This beautifully shot short documentary by Mariano Franco for Exhibitionists takes you on Van Roost's journey.
Watch Exhibitionists Sunday at 4:30pm (5pm NT) on CBC Television.
