Animation: Une Histoire Vertebrale

A beautiful 9 minute short film by Jeremy Clapin. In calm pictures he shows us the emotional state of his main character – a lonely man – and his search for others. Brilliant work that won more than 10 awards.

“…Using strong visual characterization and exploring physical disability, this film also showed warmth, depth, humanity in terms of its characters and story. This was a very complete and rewarding film…”
