9 mn animated short film (1992)

A pretty shepherdess is in love with a young shepherd. So is a fairy. The shepherdess knows how to look after sheep and dance to the sound of her boyfriend's pipe. As for the fairy, she is powerful and hard-hearted; she has a flying dragon, a crystal palace, a sleeping tower and other evil powers. Which of the two will win ?
This is a sequel to the "Cine Si" series (which would later become a feature film with the title "Princes and Princesses), going back to a simple vehicle which enables me to tell all the stories I like, while playing with bits of paper, innocent tricks and real light. 
For the story, I was inspired by one of Henri Pourrat's tales. I made it into a fight between an all powerful fairy and a shepherdess who seems defenceless, but does not give up.
