The Knits

Synopsis: 

A sweater, lovingly and arduously knit by a mother, incrementally unravels as her daughter treks her way across Canada by foot. Along the way, the film tugs at the crossed threads of familial ties, art versus craft, gendered materiality, and the relationship we have with mother nature and her great divide.
“The Knits” is a loving yet humorous homage to the artist’s mother and her chronic affliction of “the Knits”.
