This site is tribute, memorial, and inspiration to Helen Wingard Hill.
Helen Hill (May 9, 1970 – January 4, 2007) was an American animation filmmaker and social activist who lived in New Orleans, Louisiana.
On December 30, 2009, the Librarian of Congress named Hill’s film Scratch and Crow (1995) to the National Film Registry, a list of aesthetically, historically, and culturally significant American motion pictures. The Library’s news release stated: Helen Hill’s student film was made at the California Institute of the Arts. Consistent with the short films she made from age 11 until her death at 36, this animated short work is filled with vivid color and a light sense of humor. It is also a poetic and spiritual homage to animals and the human soul.
