The Street

1976, Caroline Leaf

Based on a story by Mordecai Richler, The Street examines the events surrounding the death of a family's grandmother through the eyes of its youngest member. Caroline Leaf's method of animating by painting on glass is a kind of magic that imbues the short with a dreamlike quality — the images morph and shift like fading memories.
