‘Louise’ by Anita Lebeau

The detailed characterisation in this film is beautiful.

This animated short is an ode to Louise, a fiercely independent 96-year old inspired by animator Anita Lebeau’s grandmother. Speaking in her own voice, Louise takes us through a day in her busy life near the town of Bruxelles, in rural Manitoba. Between coping with garden gophers and reaching cupboards that have grown taller, Louise’s plans sometimes miscarry, her sense of humour is foolproof.
