Raymonde or the Vertical Escape

Director: Sarah Van Den Boom 2018 16 Minutes Ages 15+

Stitching 2D and stop-motion animation together, Raymonde or the Vertical Escape is a beautiful tale of a fed-up owl. Tired of peas, aphids, dirty panties and digging in her kitchen garden, she longs for sex, love and the vastness of the sky. Having always looked to her faith for answers, Raymonde takes a new approach to liberate herself.
