Dans La Vie

Canada, 1972 (MIFF 1974)

Director: Pierre Veilleux

A child escapes from the rectangular stone world of a city, only to be placed into the microcosm of our world: the school. Without the use of a single word, this imaginative animated film sharply recalls memories of a childhood in Quebec.

Prix du Jury, Oberhausen 1973.
