The Film

Joan Walsh Anglund: Life in Story and Poem uses storytelling, illustration, animation, poems, music, and rare home movies to create a profile of her life. It is told in short "chapters": her eccentric upbringing, three major childhood tragedies, a 60-year romance with her producer/actor husband, Bob Anglund, and her unexpected success. The world is in turmoil and there is a need for stories of personal triumph and celebration.
