Le garçon qui a vu l'iceberg

Le garçon qui a vu l'iceberg

| 8 min

Court métrage d'animation qui raconte l'histoire drôle mais poignante d'un garçon à l'imagination fertile. Lassé du quotidien, il s'invente une vie d'aventure diabolique et dangereuse. Accoutumé dans ses rêves éveillés à se mesurer au monde des monstres et des malfrats, il se trouve un jour complètement désarmé devant une vraie situation dramatique. Il a même plus de difficulté que d'habitude à convaincre les autres de ce qu'il a vu : un iceberg!

Grâce à la technique qu'il utilise, celle de l'écran composite multicouche, Paul Driessen se joue des frontières mouvantes entre le réel et le fantaisiste. Film sans paroles.
