Short Film of the Month: February 2017
In what is now a monthly tradition, UniFrance is offering free viewing of a short film (documentary, drama, or animated film) that has been acclaimed at recent film festivals. This month we present Peripheria by David Coquard-Dassault as our film of the month.
Animation maintains a particular relationship with reality. This is what makes it the most universal cinematographic expression and the one most inclined to be compared with other art forms, such as painting, music, or dance.
With its air of a post-apocalyptic tale, Peripheria by David Coquard-Dassault explicitly invokes architecture. The success, during the past year, of this film produced by the Oscar-winning company Autour de Minuit is indisputable. From Japan to Morocco, from Chile to Russia, and not forgetting the United States, Switzerland, and Brazil, the film has been selected for more than 70 festivals, and has received 12 international awards.
A journey in animated images through a cityscape studded with deserted and dilapidated buildings, Peripheria sketches the portrait of an urban environment gone wild: a modern Pompei, where the wind blows and dogs wander, looking for the traces of human life.
