At Home with Mrs. Hen

Top of page

Poor Mrs. Hen! Her oldest chick is a temperamental tyke. He even turns up his beak at the meals she serves. One day, she decides to teach him a lesson.

This animated short is a touching and comical tale that pokes fun at motherhood. Without ever moralizing, it depicts the temper tantrums of a child and the efforts a loving mother makes to set her son on the right path. You don’t need to be a chicken to relate. A film without words. Technique: paper drawings and colouring. Lesson plan: www.nfb.ca/guides
