The Old Woman Knitting the Garment of the World

Responding to the pandemic, this is my adaptation of a folk tale. Made while social distancing at home with what I had in the house. Updated it with new visions of what the Great Beast brings when destroying the Garment of the World. Based on a favorite folktale told by Michael Meade. An animated short film.
