Dive (back) into the timeless animated universe of Jean-François Laguionie through seven of his poetic shorts.

An actor, the Devil, a young woman, a cellist, a bomb, Potr’, a girl from under the water, Noah, his Ark, the Atlantic, its crossing: all of these emblematic characters and elements appear in this programme representing a decade of Jean-François Laguionie’s creation which works as a single story. Sometimes surreal, always poetic, these seven films made between 1967 and 1978 for everyone’s enjoyment are the embodiment of the imaginary worlds of one of the most talented French animators alive.

The programme consists of the following films:

     L’Acteur (FR, 1975 – 5’)

•     The Mask of the Devil (FR, 1976 – 12’)

•     The Lady and the Cellist (FR, 1964 – 9’)

•     Potr’ et la fille des eaux (FR, 1974 – 11’)

•     Une bombe par hasard (FR, 1969 – 9’)

Biography

Born in 1939 in Besançon, France, Jean-François Laguionie studied applied arts before Paul Grimault initiated him to animation. He then started making his own first shorts. In 1978, he received the Palme d’Or for the Best Short Film in Cannes for Rowing Across the Atlantic. Afterwards he started to direct feature-length films with Gwen, the Book of Sand (1985), before working on A Monkey’s Tale (1999), a much more ambitious and mainstream film than his previous ones. In 2004 he adapted his own novel Black Mor’s Island, followed by Louise by the Shore which is released in 2016. The Prince’s Voyage (2019) is his sixth feature film and is set in the same world as A Monkey’s Tale.
