Trying to change an old story

When you live in the Netherlands, you can't escape the annual heated discussion around 'Zwarte Piet'. I tried approach the issue from a different angle.

After researching the roots of the tradition and of the story behind it, I found that this story is older than most people know and has probably been subject to massive changes over centuries.

I created a one-page website with bespoke illustrations and animation to try to create a dialogue and raise the question: Could the story be changed again to fit into today's time?
