Pumpkins and Old Lace

8 min 49 s
Juliette Loubières

The perfect “Granny or Grandpa” poster face is what the photographer from Discra, an adult diaper company, hopes to find as he approaches a retirement home, camera in hand.  A quick look at a couple of “nice old folks” and that should be it.  But it’s just the beginning of the story (or rather stories). While the folks he meets are a bit long in the tooth, they have a lot to say.  With Pumpkins and Old Lace, Juliette Loubières joins the classic tradition of puppet animation films, creating a sincere, whimsical fairy tale with a moral that reminds us that old age is sometimes a mask guarding the treasures of our souls.
