Bye Bye Dandelion: Audio Visual Transmission Guide #38/52a - A Year In The Country
Bye Bye Dandelion, which is a short animated film by Isabell Garrett; it is a gentle, surprising film which tells the tale of attachment and loss between the central character and a dandelion they find. There is a quality to the film that is both timeless and contemporary and it put me in mind somehow of classic British television animation that I grew up with (Camberwick Green, Smallfilms etc) and yet also seems to connect with the spirit of European landscape and animation that I can't quite put my finger on; possibly a hint of the spirit of Czech New Wave films such as Daisies and Malá Morská Víla/The Little Mermaid.
