The NFB during COVID-19: read the Commissioner's letter.

Draw Me Close

Written and Directed by Jordan Tannahill
Produced by Toby Coffey, Johanna Nicholls (National Theatre), David Oppenheim

Draw Me Close blurs the worlds of live performance, virtual reality and animation to create a vivid memoir about the relationship between a mother and her son in the wake of her terminal-cancer diagnosis. Weaving theatrical storytelling with cutting-edge technology, the performance takes a deceptively simple approach to the immersive medium, allowing the audience member to take the part of protagonist, Jordan, inside a live, animated world.
