Details:

The Rainbow Bridge and Other Stories feature Hobey Ford’s unique style combining stunning shadow puppetry and storytelling to retell three folktales. The Rainbow Bridge recalls the origins of the Chumash, a Native American tribe who inhabited the southern coastal regions of California. Then, we learn how the little coqui frog got its song in the Puerto Rican tale El Coqui, followed by an ecological twist on the Nordic tale Three Billy Goats Gruff.
