Gwen was adopted by a tribe of nomads in a post-apocalyptic world invaded by sand. In this desert where only a few animals survive, an unknown entity pours out gigantic banal objects from our world: suitcases, telephones, clocks ... When the boy with whom Gwen befriended is kidnapped by the entity she decides to go looking for him. If Jean-François Laguionie has directed several classics of animated cinema, the heart of his work is "Gwen, the Book of Sand". Made entirely of paper cut outs, this film is a timeless dreamlike tale, full of poetry and mysteries. One to watch over and over again, especially in its restored version!
