In Alice’s Four Stories, Myriam Jacob-Allard explores a story which, because of its persistence, is part of the family lore. This story, told countless times by her grandmother, is an implausible tale of the time a hurricane worthy of “The Wizard of Oz”, when she was a child, picked her up and sent her flying.
The picture in the video is split in two and shows images taken from the internet or from disaster films that document tornados and hurricanes on one side and the artist reading a weather forecast against an amateurish green background on the other. Here Jacob-Allard lip-synchs a story told by her grandmother. A montage/collage of images to her left flows past to illustrate the story. The visual codes of the television weather forecast quickly become secondary to four different versions of her grandmother’s story, which Jacob-Allard recorded over a ten-year period. Over the years, the story changes. The key points remain but the sequence of events differs and, curiously, the more time passes, the further back the story goes, with her grandmother saying she was fourteen, then thirteen, twelve, and eleven years old. Alice’s Four Stories, in its many offshoots, becomes a kind of essay on memory, passing on, and belonging. (France Choinière)

In an abandoned attic, the dictaphone robot REC desperately tries to connect to a bird that stops on its window. Using his play button to say something, he finds himself shocked by the content and scares the bird away. He rushes to make her come back, to record over his “own voice” before his battery leaks.
