What if you‘re just getting to know the best granny in the world, only to start losing her again right away?
My Crazy Granny! is a touching story about Saäda, who is thrilled her grandma from Surinam is moving to Holland, only weeks before her birthday. But due to her dementia grandma seems to be confused, making Saäda think her granny is crazy!
Created as part of ‘Kid en Colour VI’, an initiative from the Dutch Cultural Media Fund, the programme is designed to develop new talent from diverse cultural backgrounds and to help them create stories that reflect our multicultural society. In My Crazy Granny! a family of Surinam origins is dealing with a universal issue (dementia) without expounding the problems of their cultural background.
During the PRIX JEUNESSE INTERNATIONAL in 2012 My Grazy Granny! was one of the finalists in the Up to 6 Fiction category. Read the jury report here.
