Walk With Me

Genre : Animation
Type : Fiction
Column : Cinema/tv
Year of production : 2014
Format : Short

This complex, sometimes dark short film skilfully combines animation and feature film techniques. The two directors were brought together as part of the Copenhagen documentary festival's Dox:Lab project. Walk with Me was shot in Uganda and completed in Denmark. A young girl in Uganda dreams of being a ballerina, which is remarkable and almost infeasible in rural Africa.
