Produced by the NFB, Canal+ and Sacrebleu, Comic Strip Chronicles is a collection of shorts that celebrates the strong affinity between two art forms: the comic strip and the animated film. Inspired by moments of everyday life, this quartet of three-minute films showcases the playful imaginations of renowned artists from Quebec (Guy Delisle, Zviane) and France (Aude Picault, Lewis Trondheim, Jean Matthieu Tanguy). Free Love In a café in Paris, two friends—one single, the other in an “open” relationship—catch up on their lives and loves. In this animated short where the real story plays out in what’s not said, French cartoonist Aude Picault (Moi je) delivers a delightful ode to the sometimes-complex amorous relationships of modern times. She also takes an affectionate but penetrating look at friendship between women—and the jealousy, envy or judgment that can lurk behind the prettiest speeches.
