Based on the journals and photographs of the late David Marvin of Montréal, Albedo
chronicles the life of a photographer who, tormented by deafness and the
hardships of living, killed himself in 1975. Surrealistic in style, the film
parallels Marvin's life with that of a dying Montréal neighbourhood,
Griffintown, which he faithfully documented. With English subtitles.
