The Red Heels / Les talons rouges by Olesya Shchukina

The Red Heels / Les talons rouges by  Olesya Shchukina

For the assignment to make a one- minute film about a child's point of view, Olesya Shchukina describes a situation in which a small girl is lost among a world of high heels


This cut-out short enjoys using worn-out colors to match its feeling of helplessness. This fragmented world of human legs and heels (never to be seen in its entirety) is slick but imposing at the same time. Just like the neighboring gray cat.

The Red Heels (Les talons rouges) is  produced by the Valence French school of animation La Poudrière. Russian animator Olesya Shchukina is currently living and studying in France. See more of her work at
