Pipi Thay Too (The Grandmother Tree)

Dir. Laura Alice | 10 min
Short Australia 2020

In Pipi Thay Too (The Grandmother Tree) Artist, Director and Mentor Laura Alice joins with young refugee women in a unique collaboration to animate their paintings and tell their personal stories: from fleeing the brutal genocidal regime in their native Myranmar homeland to journeying to refugee camps and finally settling in Australia.  The result is a beautiful animated film celebrating resilience, the power of identity, mystical encounters with ancestors and the Karen and Karenni refugee experience.

Followed by a screening of My DACA Life (Mi Vida DACA).

Presented as part of the 2022 Immigration Film Fest, in partnership with JxJ and the Morris Cafritz Center for Social Responsibility.
