Imagination is such a precious gift, and if you have a gift, you should honour it.” So begins this documentary about Katie Ohe, an 84-year-old sculptor from Alberta. For over 60 years, Ohe has been a pillar of the Calgary art community, gaining international acclaim for her kinetic sculptures and innovative approach to materials, form, and movement. Here, she generously invites us to follow her from the privacy of her studio to the opening of the biggest solo exhibition of her career.
