New residence with the director Marie Larrivé and her animated short film Noir Soleil, in residence until June 6th.
French director Marie Larrivé will be in residence at Ciclic Animation to develop her short animation project Noir Soleil (Black Sun).
Ciclic Animation Residency has became (since 2015) one of the international references in the animation field, by providing its animation directors and their teams a workspace, a group mentality and the necessary equipment and a group mentality (6 projects at the same time and 20 residents) to pursue independent animation projects.
The 12-minute, painting on paper Noir soleil by Marie Larrivé is a short film about the incommunicability of the relationship between a father and his daughter, the loneliness and the burden of a painful legacy.
Dino has to go to the south of Italy to take a DNA test. The Italian police have found a corpse which they suspect could be Dino's father who disappeared 50 years ago. Accompanied by his 16 year old daughter Victoria, he does his best to keep her from learning the details of his father's tragic death and to hide his growing uneasiness. Far from protecting his daughter, his silence kindles in her a powerful desire to learn their morbid family secret - Film Synopsis
This project has received a production support for animated shorts. Eddy Production (also responsible for Le Mans 1955) produces the animated short.
