2020 | Canada | Animation (VR 360°), 6’
Director: Françis Gélinas
Production company: Astrea Immersive, Atlas V
A little brother asks his big sister how she managed to stop being afraid of the dark. She draws him into a succession of dreamlike tableaux where everything comes alive and through which the little brother learns to confront his own fears. In the Land of the Flabby Schnook is a contemplative film in which the viewer discovers a magical place through the eyes of the protagonists.
« The nod to the bush monsters who come back at the very end lets us know fear has been somewhat conquered, but perhaps not entirely. As a child, I hated when a film that had taken us on a magical adventure ended with: “it was all just a dream”, I wanted to believe the magic was indeed real, if only in the world of the film...» - Francis Gélinas, director.
