Distant Islands

Directed by Bettina Maylone (NFBC / 1981 / 6 min)


This short animation uses appliqué and embroidered tapestries to recall a young girl’s happy summers spent sailing with her family off the coast of British Columbia. Each tapestry, meticulously stitched by hand with brightly coloured yarns, evokes the memory of leisurely days at sea, drifting among the islands.
