 Animation sometimes predates reality. Watch the engagingly subversive Dust with Flour short by Annelise Williams.

The recent incident of a teenager, who turned her cremated grandfather’s ashes into homemade sugar biscuits, has been justly mentioned worldwide. However, sometimes art moves ahead of reality.

Annelise Williams is  a graduate of the University of the Arts (film supervised by Elliot Cowan) currently living in the Philadelphia area.

Corfu Animation Festival (2015) -and kudos to Aglaia Pantelaki for pointing out the relevance.
