I had the Sunday Morning Sads this AM. Not sure why Sundays sometimes get me down, but they do.
Remembered that I received an email from the NFB (National Film Board of Canada) with a link to a blogpost called 8 Female Directors Who Are Crushing It At the NFB. Trundled on over and found a wonderful short film – Here and the Great Elsewhere – created by Michèle Lemieux.
I’ve watched it twice.
I often forget about the amazingness of the NFB and all they offer up to us.
I poked around a bit and found another short animation by Lemieux – Stormy Night – that is based on her book, Gewitternacht.
You can find out more about the National Film Board of Canada and watch/rent/buy some great Canadian films over at https://www.nfb.ca
I’m going to go out for a walk to explore the melting.
I know it’s early, but it smells like SPRING out there.
Have a great week.
PS…. one more treat. Here’s Lemieux herself talking about the making of Here and the Great Elsewhere.
