The Ruffled Crow

Animation, Art, and Other Shiny Things

The Silence Beneath the Bark (le silence sous l’écorce)

This award winning film (short-listed for an Oscar in 2010 also) is a unique watercolor style animation and a sweet story from French animator Joanna Lurie.

In the depths of a great forest clad in a great white mantle, curious creatures discover how beautiful and fascinating and white snow is as it whirls them giddily on their way to extraordinary encounters with the strange and wonderful. (via)

Whatever your interpretation of the story is, (and there are some variations out there on the intertubes) the curiousity, joy, and acceptance of the world around them shines through brilliantly.
