Overview

This short animation intended to accompany Andrew Kötting’s feature-length Edith Walks explores the same themes around the life of Medieval queen Edith Swan Neck. Glenn Whiting’s animation combines drawings by Kötting’s daughter Eden, combined with illustrations from historical reference books, to create a surreal hymn to England's violent history and arcane iconography.
