A cat chasing a mouse, in five different animation techniques.
Before directing his first feature film, My Life as a Courgette, Claude Barras directed several short films including The Genie in a Ravioli Can, which received numerous awards in film festivals around the world. Claude Barras’s unique connection with childhood transcends time and age differences; he has the rare gift of being able to make you laugh and cry at the same time. His stories are filled with realism and fantasy, humor and poetry. He was the impetus for adapting Gilles Paris’s Autobiography of a Courgette into a stop-motion animation film.
Georges Schwizgebel was born in Switzerland in 1944. After studies at the École des arts décoratifs in Geneva, he worked in an advertising agency for several years before founding the GDS Studio with Claude Luyet and Daniel Suter in 1970. Since then, he has produced and directed 18 short animated films that particularly focus on the medium of painting on cels. Alongside his filmmaking career, he also creates posters and frescoes.
