Lanterne Magique 2017 >

Animated documentary filmmaking is booming. Some consider it to be a genre intended for adults. Under the title Ani doc doc, a programme of twelve short films, carefully selected by La Lanterne Magique film club for children, fully intends to show the opposite, namely that anidoc, as the specialists call it, can constitute an impressive means of awareness of oneself, of others and of the world for young people.

Travel journals, children’s dreams, an autistic little brother, the stress of working in a large restaurant, the visions of blind cyclists, the entirely pacifistic tracking of the fascinating woolly tapir… Little ones and grown-ups alike will make the most of these dives into the real to which animation adds an undeniable emotional, poetic or humorous dimension!

This pioneering exploration will be preceded by the première of the short film made during an intergenerational workshop bringing together children and adults. A collaboration between La Lanterne Magique, Pro Senectute Vaud and Visions du Réel, with the precious support of the Fondation Leenaards.
