The stories made me laugh, cry and wonder about the stories my own friends and family members could share. I enjoyed the animation also. The runtime of 100 minutes is misleading. The feature is less than a half hour (about 22 minutes), so I think the 100 minutes includes all of the extras. I had seen some of these stories before, on the StoryCorps Animated Shorts DVD also available from Hennepin County Library, but they are so good that I didn't mind watching them again.

What a brilliant idea this is! I've heard of collecting oral histories on tape and even participated in collecting some. But taking a mobile unit around to communities all over the US made it easy for people in those communities to voluntarily come in and talk, by themselves or with someone else, about someone they want to remember or honour in some way. I thoroughly enjoyed the stories and the animations created to go with the stories. Some made me laugh, some made me cry. They all made me feel.
