Animated Short Film

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW YOUR GRANDPARENTS MET? 

WHEN I SAT DOWN WITH MY GRANDMOTHER TO HEAR HER LIFE STORY, THere WAS ONE PART I COULDN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT. MY GRANDPARENTS ARRIVED IN CANADA, BOTH DISPLACED PERSONS, AND FELL IN LOVE UNDER EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES. 

I DECIDED TO MAKE A SHORT ANIMATED FILM ABOUT THEIR STORY. THE FILM WILL TAKE PLACE IN BOTH THE PAST AND PRESENT AS A CONVERSATION BETWEEN A GRANDMOTHER AND HER CURIOUS GRANDDAUGHTER. 

THE FILM ADDRESSES THE IDEA OF HOW CULTURE REALLY CONNECTS US, WHETHER IT BE FINDING A SOUL-MATE OR ACCEPTING YOUR GRANDPARENTS. 

MY GRANDMOTHER IS 86 AND I WANT HER DESPERATELY TO SEE THIS FILM ABOUT A SMALL MOMENT IN HER LIFE WHICH I THINK IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL. I AM ALSO MAKING THIS FILM TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD, SINCE ITS THEMES ARE CROSS-CULTURAL.
