Director Catherine Legault’s debut documentary uses various filmmaking techniques, including animation and cinema verite, to explore the artistic worlds of Canadian sisters Tyr and Jasa.


Immersed in art from a young age, the sisters embrace creativity, Tyr is a musician and singer while Jasa is an interdisciplinary artist. Working together they create their own imaginary worlds that draw upon cassette recordings of Icelandic folk songs sung by their great-grandmother, memories of her life as a girl in the north Atlantic country.


Tracing their roots to Iceland, the sisters travel to the country to immerse themselves in a collaborative project.


Sisters: Dream and Variations is beautifully realised documentary that explores the world of the sisters, the nature of creativity, family, community, and culture.
