Genius Loci

International Short Film Competition

Reine has low self-esteem. She feels lonely and disturbed by her noisy surroundings. She therefore looks for tenderness and understanding amongst the obstacles that she often places in her own path herself. This original animation filled with symbolism reveals the protagonist’s inner world and processes her impressions and contemplations that are beyond mere words.
