Each stop of the trip is a link in the chain of the entire project, gathering a new team composed of creative and international members, pooling their means of production to tell about the place. Part of the team will then board in and lead the boat to the next harbour, while making an original animated film that will be broadcast at the next stop.
Story behind the project
Origins of the project by its initiator, Géraldine.
At first, it was a dream from childhood: to follow the great sailors' footsteps, around Cape Horn, through the Panama Canal. As far as I remember, I've always been fascinated by the sea.
As for Latin America, I am profoundly connected to this continent. I traveled a lot there, I even lived there, and it now belongs to my story and memories. I kept strong links with Latin America and it is still constantly in my mind. The idea of making short films started with the desire of telling, sharing and making people dream. I first thought about using movies as a support while making my first short film named Ventana de Papel. This film depicts the city of Valparaiso (in Chile) by telling a tale.
In the end, this trip on ‘Le Bato A Film’ appeared as an obvious choice.
