L’Autre by Elsa Souchet
«You can only see well with your heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes,» said Saint-Exupéry. Taking empathy as her starting point, Elsa conceived of this animated poem: l’Autre. Based on a true story, it recounts the cruel type of episode that people with reduced mobility experience on a daily basis.
Stylised drawings in soft but bold colours have been developed and then animated using Photoshop and After Effects software. Complemented by a pared-down voice-over narration, the images deliver a simple and touching story. This animated poem, which is intended for young audiences, mobilises both the child’s auditory and visual memory and invites them to fully experience the reality of the «Other».
