The Ballad of Holland Island House

United States

Lynn Tomlinson Director


    Animated clay paintings tell the true story of the last house on a sinking island in the Chesapeake Bay.

    In an Old-Time Music ballad, the house sings of its life and the creatures it has sheltered during its journey from tree, to timber, to home, to its ultimate return to nature.

    It contemplates time, environmental change, and the rise of the seas.
