Grimm Legacies 2012: Death and the Mother by Ruth Lingford

Finally, the majority of Ruth Lingford's presenation at Grimm Legacies was dedicated to sharing this film, Death and the Mother, a film she animated and for which she received great recognition.

She shared the story of needing child friendly content to animate while she was an artist in residence with the responsibility to sit in a room and let visitors watch her work at a museum. She went to her shelves and pulled down a volume of Hans Christian Andersen tales. She read The Story of a Mother and thought she couldn't do that for children but the story resonated anyway and a film was born.

The audience begged her to animate more fairy tales after the viewing...
