Before he focused his career on feature films, legendary director Jean-François Laguionie was admired for his enchanting short animated films.

Spanning works from 1964’s The Lady and the Cellist to 1978’s César Award–winning Rowing Across the Atlantic, this program delves into the singular imagination of a visionary filmmaker.

All the films were recently restored and digitized by L’Agence du court métrage.
