Many of the shorts in the animation category utilise allegory and metaphor to communicate poignant and complex issues with the utmost responsibility and creativity. The 2019 films include interpretations of death, grief, loyalty, memory and isolation.
My Mother’s Eyes circulates around the experience of motherhood and loss in the abstracted world of the psyche. The Childhood memories presented to us are powerful and evocative – personal and impacting. This film was awarded Best Animated Short at the Tribeca Film Festival 2019.
My Mother’s Eyes is screening as part of Animation 1: Living With The Past.
It will be shown on Wednesday 6 November at Everyman Cinema (17:15-18:15); Thursday 7 November at the Yorkshire Museum (20:15-21:15); Friday 8 November in Friargate (21:00-22:00); Saturday 9 November in Friargate Theatre (21:00-22:00) and Sunday 10 November at the Yorkshire Museum (10:00-11:00).
