Title

Her Eyes

Abstract

Her Eyes is an animated graduate thesis film that is 13 minutes and 25 seconds in length. Through the course of the film, the audience witnesses several years of the main character, Sam Peterson’s, daily life as he suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. As Sam continues to try and live his life unaffected by the disease, he comes to the realization that his sole dependent, Helen, his granddaughter, has changed roles from being under his care, to his sole caretaker. From this realization, Sam comes to the harsh decision to protect his granddaughter’s future, valuing the time in which he can remember her over the length of his lifespan.
