Arts fans will want to check out the trailer for the new CBC documentary Cue the Muse, which gets inside the heads of painter Tiko Kerr, Ballet B.C. dancer Alexis Fletcher, luthier Nicole Alosinac, and singer Colleen Rennison of No Sinner.
The film, by local directors Jodie Martinson and Greg Masuda, digs into how their subjects have managed to keep their creativity alive from childhood, and have honed and nurtured it more than the rest of us.
There's some particularly arresting imagery of the muscular yet graceful Fletcher as she takes the spotlight on the Queen E. stage, and Kerr intensely focusing on his brushwork. And can you recognize the faces in the footage from their childhoods?
The documentary airs on Saturday (September 1) at 7 p.m. on CBC.
