The Cobbler’s Daughter

Writer/Director: Donna Thorland; Producer: Charles DeRosa

Inspired by the visual style of Edward Gorey and Ingmar Bergman, and thematically based on the fairy tale, Rumplestiltskin, The Cobbler’s Daughter is the story of an artisan, fallen on hard times, whose young daughter encounters a mysterious Tinker. The Tinker sharpens and enchants the Cobbler’s tools, but such fey magic always has a cost. For a time the Cobbler profits handsomely and his daughter grows into a maiden of great charm and vivacity, while the fateful toll falls on his customers. In the end, however, the Tinker returns a final time to claim his true payment.
