The Flax – an animated film for children (no age limits) made using a unique, auteur, painting animation technique directly under the camera.
This is a beautiful, poetic and exceedingly subtle picture for children, dealing with the joy of learning the world and oneself, the difficult art of accepting life in all its manifestations. This metaphoric tale of flax, its planting, growing, blooming, maturing, harvesting, followed by its transformation, first into linen, then into paper, and ultimate burning, contains a philosophical message about passing.
The film is the first and, so far, the only screening of Hans Christian Andersen’s enchanting tale called The Flax.
