SHEEP, WOLF AND A CUP OF TEA… (MOUTONS, LOUP ET TASSE DE THÉ…)

Marion Lacourt

France, 2019 / 13 min / without words / Animation

Part of the short film collection Sheep, wolf and cup of tea.

After a nocturnal ritual, a child’s room is besieged by sheep.

At night, while the rest of the family indulge in curious rituals before going to sleep, a child invokes a wolf from the bottom of a box hidden under its bed. Disturbing sheep then besiege the door of the bedroom.

“A hypnotic and sensorial animated night tale of bedtime rituals that progressively flows into sleep, snoring and dreams. Marion Lacourt’s choreographed universe of lines, colors and sounds is brought into movement and awakes the forms and figures of the night, escaping from dreams and hidden boxes… The immersive soundtrack and creative metamorphoses of the drawings lead to a surrealistic and almost psychedelic ballet of endless possibilities.” Tizian Büchi, Locarno Film Festival
