The Florenstine Collection

When Helen Hill found over 100 handmade dresses in a trash pile, she set out to make a film about their maker: an African American seamstress who had just passed. Hill was still working on the film when she was murdered in 2007. Her husband, Paul Gailiunas completed the film using restored home movies and Hill's original silhouette, cut-out and puppet animation.
