A filmmaker stuck in an arid, jobless Montreal winter embarks on an improbable quest across the USA, taking her director of photography along for the journey. L.A. TEA TIME is an unusual travelogue, at times meditative, at times haunted, recounting the adventures of Sophie and Isabelle with humour and a little touch of magic.

Sophie is a filmmaker whose intimate approach leaves room for detours and adventures, bypassing the standards of more didactic and conventional cinema. After making a first documentary essay entitled J'AI COMME RECULÉ ON DIRIAT in 2016, she switched to fiction with CLAIRE L'HIVER, which premiered at the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma in 2017, then at the NYC Independent Film Festival and at the Cineteca Nacionale in Mexico. Her most recent project, L.A. TEA TIME, had its premiere at Visions du Réel in spring 2019.
