Look at What the Light Did Now documents the journey of Feist’s Grammy nominated album “The Reminder.” This poetic film pulls back the curtain to reveal intimate partnerships with the people Feist calls her ‘amplifiers’: The photographer who helped her hide within the frame, shadow puppeteers in hockey arenas, an artist who built a thread-radiating mural, the video director who conducted fireworks, the pianist who guided the recording of the album, and other musical and visual collaborators.

The film follows Feist and her supporting cast through an impressionistic array of flickering scenery, echoing stadiums, puppet workshops, the red carpet, a crumbling French mansion, definitive concert performances and uncommonly candid interviews. Itself a part of the creative mosaic it portrays, Look At What The Light Did Now illuminates the synergy of collaboration, art as magnifying glass, and the power of trust.

Look at What the Light Did Now is presented with VIFF and is a PuSh+ event, a work featured outside the Festival’s typical mid-winter schedule. Please note that you must be a Vancity Theatre member to attend, memberships can be purchased for only $2. Additional service charges apply to online orders.

The film features Judd Palmer, co-funder of The Old Trout Puppet Worksop (Calgary). The Old Trout Puppet Worksop explores the outer edges of the puppet medium and creates original, unique and exuberant art. Their shows strive for delightful allegory, joyful tragedy, and purity of spirit. They created, constructed and performed Famous Puppet Death Scenes, which premiered at the PuSh Festival in 2006 and has toured in the U.S. & Canada and is now preparing for a tour in France.

“the breathtaking inventiveness and playfulness of the Trouts’ imaginations take the sting out of death. Who knew mortality could be so easy to laugh at?” Georgia Straight.
