Muffins for Granny is a remarkably layered, emotionally complex story of personal and cultural survival. Nadia tells the story of her own grandmother by combining precious home movie fragments with the stories of seven elders dramatically affected by their experiences in residential school. Nadia uses animation with a painterly visual approach to move the audience between the darkness of memory and the reality that these charismatic survivors live in today.

Muffins for Granny won honorable mention at the 7th Annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival. The jury felt the film represented a ""strong, eloquent new voice.""

Nadia McLaren (Ojibway) hails from northern Ontario. She is a visual artist, writer and graduate from the Ontario College of Art and Design. Muffins For Granny is her first feature film.
