Pierogi Pinch

Pierogi Pinch

| 1 min

As a young woman finds herself lost in daydreams while clumsily performing the tradition of making pierogies, she invokes the presence of her grandmother, who guides her through the messy ritual. The film is a fusion of hand-drawn animation, folk art and stereoscopic drawings made in space, by Calgary illustrator and filmmaker Kiarra Albina.

This film was made as part of the 6th edition of the NFB's Hothouse apprenticeship.
