52 Films by Women #3 and #4 Animations by Michèle Lemieux

Hullo Lovelies…

I had the Sunday Morning Sads this AM.  Not sure why Sundays sometimes get me down, but they do.

grand-ailleurs-e1348348737242Remembered 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.

Beautiful.

I often forget about the amazingness of the NFB and all they offer up to us.

nuit-dorage_1I 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

And now…

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.

go easy~p

PS…. one more treat.  Here’s Lemieux herself talking about the making of  Here and the Great Elsewhere.

  1. Those were both great, and oh boy, can I ever relate to Stormy Night!

    • Hey Andrea – oh man, me toooooooo! It made me smile so big…the thinking on and on and on….so familiar.

      May we always find our way to that sunny morning….passing through the stormy night.

      be well~p
