Nuit chérie (Sweet Night) Lia Bertels

SEAFF IV | Nuit chérie (Sweet Night) | Lia Bertels

In winter, in Himalaya, a bear does not manage to fall asleep. He thinks too much and is in the doldrums. When a white monkey suggests him going to eat some honey at his aunt to change him the ideas. A beautiful winter night opens has they and the bear realizes that he did well, not to fall asleep.

Studying animation cinema at La Cambre from 2006 to 2011, Lia Bertels quickly became attached to a poetic cinema giving as much importance to writing as to the expression of her characters, all full of intentions and humor. Her work dwells on the details that say a lot about the characters and she devotes all her energy and her mind to representing the invisible in each of us, the unacknowledged gesture that betrays us all in our fairest character, leaving behind a deep lesson in humanism. From live music videos to pure illustration through her favorite instrument animation, Lia Bertels uses graphic expression in an efficient and stripped-down style, a real plea for the deep nature of beings, taking its audience into an extremely intimate sphere of perceptions and feelings.
