A drawing based animation: A series of vignettes based on my childhood perspective on my step grandmother, Anna, who survived WW2 in Hungary to later emigrate to Canada and marry my elderly grandfather. The stories reflect the odd habits she had developed as part of her survival, and the humanity and inhumanity of this process.

Created during a thematic residency “Burnout: loss and recovery” at the Alternator Gallery during October 2004. Featuring original music composed by Moshe Denburg, performed by the Orchid Ensemble. Supported by Sony.
