A Year at Sherbrooke

This feature documentary follows 2 artists, Thelma Pepper and Jeff Nachtigall, as they work with the residents of Sherbrooke Community Centre, a long-term care facility in Saskatoon. As Thelma documents the residents of Sherbrooke through her own portrait photography, Jeff spends close to a year as artist-in-residence, helping them make art. The film explores how creativity can transform people's lives, from the abled to the differently abled—all the while vividly demonstrating the healing power of art and community.
