My Grandmother Ironed The King's Shirts

My Grandmother Ironed The King's Shirts Movie Poster

Treating history as a fabric woven from personal stories, animator Torill Kove imaginatively renders her grandmother's life and work in Oslo, ironing shirts for the King of Norway. Combining historical events and fantasy, the film playfully embroiders the experience of an ordinary woman with a revolutionary instinct. With sharp humor, storytelling, myth-making and the important contributions that are possible through the most humble means are explored.

Director: Torill Kove
