In a family that is shrinking and a world that is growing bigger, three precocious childrenattempt to carve out a unique space for themselves and the memory of their parents.
‘Crocosmia’ is an explosion of fast-paced, visual storytelling following the Brackenberg siblings and their attempts to make sense of the world through cake puppetry, romantic slide shows and ingenious bulb experiments, all backed by their parents' vintage record collection.
'Can a vivid imagination be a substitute for real loss?'
