Good Grief is a short stop motion animated documentary that explores the lessons we learn from dealing with grief and loss. Five real people share their true stories of losing something precious and what it has taught them about living.
When animator Fiona Dalwood’s mother died she went through a profound period of grieving. In the wake of that life-changing process she learnt a lot about herself and the depths of her sadness. Out of it came a strong desire to turn her experience into something positive. She made a promise to her deceased mother that she would pursue what she loved. Good Grief is the result of that promise.
Fiona went about interviewing people who had lost something precious. She asked them how they got through their grief and what perspectives they gained from it. Those interviews were recorded and four unique stories emerged.
