Synopsis

A few black lines on a white screen, a juggler comes to life and plays his corporal and juggled score before disappearing leaving the traces of his juggling on the screen. The poetry of the ridiculous, the greatness of clumsiness. Animated in rotoscopy in order to use its authenticity, the movement is reinterpreted graphically with cartoon influences.

Synopsis

New Horizons is a documentary directed by Antoine Menard as part of the "5.0" project initiated by The Elemen'Terre Project during their tour of the Ponant Islands in Brittany, on the sailing boat Pen Duick VI. He follows the circus artists of the world-famous "Cirque Barcode" troupe as they talk about their ambitions to use their art as a means of conveying messages of ecology and environmental protection. The challenge they set for themselves during this trip is first of all, to realize a tour of shows with low carbon emissions thanks to their sailing trips. Then, they will create and perform a brand new show on each island where they will land and on a different environmental theme.
