My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me

Amy Ruhl

Expanding off earlier work involving looping, multi-channel fairy tales, My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me is an adaptation of a folk type most popularized by Grimm’s Juniper Tree, a story where every essential plot point is so violent and grotesque, it is impossible to  adapt into a children’s movie, especially the optimistic brand of Disney feminism so popular today.
