MyFrenchFilmFestival Short Directors: Sarah Van Den Boom

13 January 2017 11:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Using 2D animation set against photographed backgrounds and also fragments of oil painted animation, gifted Paris-based animator-illustrator Sarah Van Den Boom’s “In Deep Waters,” which plays UniFrance’s 7th MyFrenchFilmFestival, is a recent example of France’s high animation standards.

It’s also another feather in the cap for her production company Papy3D whose“The Head Vanishes,” directed  by Franck Dion, has made the 10-pic Oscar shortlist, as well as winning best short film at the Annecy International Animation Festival.

“Waters” turns on two babies who forge a close bond in the womb and the consequences this has for the adult life of one of them. An exploration of the Vanishing Twin Syndrome, the short format straddles both 2D and stop-motion techniques.

“My new short is about a 60-year-old woman farmer who realizes very late that she has sacrificed her life to conform to a model that does not fit her. »
