The US rights for Blue Spirit Animation/BE Films co production Le Tabeau (trans: The Painting) has been acquired by the distributor Gkids. The international premiere for the Jean-Francois Laguionie-directed animated film was recently held at the New York Children’s Film Festival, which is produced by Gkids.
The film, which was already released in France and Belgium last March 8, follows the story of different races of painted beings in various styles and stages of completion, as they go on an adventure to search for answers within their canvas world. The film has been widely praised by film critics for its innovative story and artistic approach.
The film was written by Jean-Francois Laguionie himself, with help from Anik Leray. You can watch the trailer below for more details as to the film’s story:
