Muffins for Granny Documentary Screening
January 24th, 2019
6:30pm-9:00pm
Rm. 230, 100 McCaul St.

Written and Directed by filmmaker and Faculty and Curriculum Development Centre team member, Nadia McLaren. 

Muffins for Granny is a remarkably layered, emotionally complex story of personal and cultural survival. McLaren tells the story of her own grandmother by combining precious home movie fragments with the stories of seven elders dramatically affected by their experiences in residential school. McLaren uses animation with a painterly visual approach to move the audience between the darkness of memory and the reality that these charismatic survivors live in today.

Jesse Wente, named Muffins for Granny “… among the best modern Canadian docs, this fascinating and devastating look at the legacy of residential schools in Canada mixes personal story telling and animation to great results.”

“… a marvellously assured and moving debut…”
- Deirdre Swain, NOW Magazine NNNN
