Inspired by director/animator Anita Lebeau’s grandmother of Belgian descent, this video takes us through a day in the life of feisty, 96-year-young Louise. Armed with an ambitious ‘To Do’ list, and expecting company to boot, Louise starts her day.  From household chores to mowing the lawn and tending the garden, she fills every second with a delightful sense of purpose.  Skillfully animated and interspersed throughout with family portraits and memorabilia, the film draws a vivid picture of a life fully lived and still being lived.
