The Scarf

The subject matter of this animated short may well have played as much a part in your life as that of its young protagonist. A young boy is pleased when his grandmother comes to stay (they are the best, after all!) yet his excitement as this addition to the household slowly turns to bemusement and even anger.

His grandmother is suffering from Alzheimer’s and the grandmother is ‘there and not there, changing and changing again’.

This is a heartfelt and touching short film, created by Carla Veldman. Even if your family has not been affected by this dreadful condition I am sure you will be touched by this moving and beautifully made film.
