Le collectionneur de sons

| 11 min

Court métrage d’animation sur l’imagination d’un enfant. Alors que son frère aîné collectionne les coquillages, Léon, six ans, collectionne les sons. « Mais où gardes-tu ta collection? » demande son grand frère. « Dans ma tête! » répond Léon. Le ton est donné. Le vol d'une abeille, le jappement du chien ou la pluie sur les fenêtres se confondent dans la tête de Léon. Le film les restitue de manière fantaisiste.

Brief “lesson launcher type” activity or a series of inquiry questions with a bit of context:

An animated film outlining the experience of two children stuck in the house and trying to make the best of a boring day. Seymour has a difficult time understanding Leo’s game at first. What do you think convinces him to take part in the storytelling? How can being “bored” or stuck inside encourage imagination? Does this style of animation remind you of anything? Why might the filmmaker have chosen to use some realistic images, such as the magazine cut-outs, but also some unrealistic images, such as an exaggerated size of hands?
