Madagascar

Madagascar

This film uses rotoscoping – an animation technique that draws directly frame by frame on live action film, producing a beautiful, sensuous effect especially suited to this travelogue set in Madagascar.  The narrator is invited into the interior of the island to witness Famadihana, or the ‘turning of the dead’.  The film is a riot of colour, sound, and Malagasy and French language and music, and all produced as if for a moving picture book ‘journey diary’, or ‘carnet de voyage’.
