Last week, I watched a very interesting French animation called ”Ernest & Celestine‘’. This very beautifully made hand drawn animation all in water colour, reminds you of your childhood and simplify of everything while carrying a bigger message underneath about the social classes and the gaps created in the societies for no good reasons, of course you can read much more into this!
This five years in production animation is based on illustrated books with the same name, directed by Stéphane Aubier, Vincent Patar and Benjamin Renner, has been travelling the world from Cannes to Toronto and just reached London for the London BFI film festival. Watch the trailer below as well as Q&A session after the screening with one of the directors Benjamin Renner. Unfortunately it’ll be only released in a number of countries but be sure to get the DVD!
