This short film by year 5 & 6 students Chiara, Honor, Ava, Mireille, Elektra and Cate from North Melbourne Primary School, tells the story of Rosa's cloth.
This is Rosa.
This is Rosa's cloth:
Rosa thought it was a table cloth.
This is Rosa's mother Maria.
It was Rosa's grandmother who made the cloth.
She always wondered why there was only one side with embroidery.
Then Rosa went in the Calvin Gars Museum and saw this painting.
The painting is called the Chocolate Girl.
She realised that her piece of cloth was really a shawl.
