Canadian Premiere

This film highlights the work and perfectionism of American sculptor Elizabeth King, who embarks on each new project posing a single question to herself: “Can this be done?” Viewers will discover King’s creative process, curiosity, and obsessive drive to solve the inevitable series of artistic and technical problems that arise in creating her sculptures and animations. Between realism and surrealism, the film highlights the artist’s passion for automata and puppets, as well as the role of movement and the body throughout her career.
