A person dozing in a hotel room allows himself to be invaded by memories which form an escape expressed in drawings. The film is one of the most complex by Georges Schwizgebel. The use of vivid colours, the counterpoint of the interwoven images, the animation of impossible geometric figures combined with a contemporary sound tape make this film one of the best and most interesting in the author's filmography.
Georges Schwizgebel was born in Switzerland in 1944. After graduating from 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, primarily focusing on the medium of painting on cels. Beside his filmmaking career, he also creates posters and frescoes.
