A tender fairy tale about discovery and growing up, this is The Silence Beneath the Bark, Le silence sous l’écorce (2010), by Joanna Lurie. Read more about the film here.
Lurie’s previously featured work, Partir (Leaving), explores similar themes.
And on that note, be sure to watch the film short Premier Automne by French animation studio Je Regarde.
