BeCause & Effect #113: Alice Teufack

This week’s guest on BeCause & Effect is Alice Teufack, the first-time documentary filmmaker behind Grand Frère, the fifth and final Cinematoba film.

Grand Frère is a documentary that explores the impact of André Doumbé, a Cameroonian refugee and Franco-Manitoban who changed lives with his generosity.

Nolan and Alice discuss André’s life and legacy, Alice’s decision to switch from working in finance to becoming a filmmaker, and the experience of creating her first documentary film for Cinematoba.

Watch Grand Frère

Cinematoba, a partnership between The Winnipeg Foundation and the National Screen Institute, is an initiative focused on supporting local filmmakers as they share stories of local generosity from across Manitoba. The goal of the program is for all Manitobans to discover what generosity looks like in our province and was originally planned as part of The Foundation’s 2021 centennial celebrations but was delayed to 2022-2023 due to COVID.
