A short-film by Marie-Christine Courtès. Art direction : Ludivine Berthouloux. I worked on it as a 2D animator.
“The day of the cremation of her grand mother, Emilie, a young mixed-race Asian girl, buries herself into her grandmother memories. She discovers the Indochina of Hoa, her romantic encounter with Jacques (a French colon), the birth of Linh (Emilie’s mother) and her tragic departure to France in 1956.
She relives with Linh, the arrival into the camp of Sainte-Livrade, the exploitation of the Indochinese women by the market gardeners of Lot-et-Garonne.
Between memories, dance, anger and traditional rituals, Emilie learns to accept this heritage…”
“Under your fingers” is a co-production Vivement Lundi ! / Novanima Productions.
