Combining documentary footage with animation, it provides a poetic perspective on childhood trauma, the nature of storytelling, the transience of life and the release of love. The screening will be followed by a talk with Judith Price, a video, performance artist and educator, who will be speaking about the film and the art of Laurie Anderson.”
