THE LOST GARDEN

Animated short film

Outline

A film is based on the poem of Claude ROY, a French poet who passed away in 1997, Le jardin perdu (The lost garden). A simple poetry is visualized with a picture-book-like touch. When all the buildings fall down, the trees and flowers in the garden prepare for the journey and start moving. They take a train to the big city and look for a place where they can be a garden.
