In this stop motion animated film ‘Day of the Dutch’ by Martha Colburn we follow a day in the life of a ‘living skeleton’ family in a Dutch home environment. The film shows events from the daily life of a modern (deceased) family. Like the Dutch genre paintings from the Golden Age, the film depicts the traditional values of family and standards.
