Top of page

A journey into the imagination of six European and North American animated film creators: Jacques Drouin and Tali in Canada, Barry Purves in the UK, Pjotr Sagepin in Russia, Georges Schwizgebel in Switzerland and Raoul Servais in Belgium. The film takes an original, touching and incisive look at the creative process involved in making an animated film. A rare opportunity to hear animation filmmakers talk openly about the art of storytelling, the limitations of their field, and their form of expression: puppets, drawing, painting and Alexeieff’s pinscreen technique.
