On Saturday, September 25 Calgarians looked up as David, North America’s largest marionette, assisted by a team of puppeteers and operators, climbed Devon Tower outside Eau Claire Market. CIFF co-imagined this groundbreaking collaboration with our friends at Beakerhead to help uplift and inspire our community by showing what’s possible when we work together.
A young reporter, Gaby, and her trusty cameraman have been out of work since the COVID-19 pandemic. Excited to be back the field, they agree to cover Beakerhead 2021, not knowing that a few minutes into the event, David, North America’s largest marionette would be climbing the side of the Devon tower. Hungry for an inside scoop, Gaby and her cameraman go above and beyond to discover David’s motivation with a little help from a mysterious stranger.
