This Woman Used Her Grandmother’s Old Possessions and Made Something Beautiful

 

This is the most touching and heartfelt tribute you will see today. When filmmaker Gemma Green-Hope’s grandmother passed in 2010, the family had to sort through her possessions and belongings. As she explains on Vimeo:

“I inherited some of her clothes to wear, books to read, a bicycle to ride. But how do you make sense of all the other things that someone leaves behind, the things nobody sees, boxes full of photographs, and bits of string? I used these objects alongside images and memories of my own to make this short animation, which I dedicate to her memory.”
