Gifts of Seeing (2009) Trailer
How do we celebrate those little memories that make life worth living? By remembering them and sharing them in digital stories. Three senior citizens narrate gentle experiences of a time in American society when dolls went to the hospital and tame ducklings could be kept in the house, and a beloved little dog who helps out with the family chores! The animator shares a personal story of cross-cultural dating in Chicago. Cut paper and claymation help to tell the stories, along with family photos and vintage video. On display are photos dating all the way back to the Crimean War.
