13 mn animated short film (1992)

Here we have an innocent boy, a pretty princess, a treacherous merchant and a giant eagle who is fond of jewels. The tale is set in the country of the Arabian Nights, under a hail of precious stones...
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.
In this tale, my inspiration comes from the Orient and I love being with princes, princesses, sultans, turbans, moonlight, palaces, deserts, precious stones, eagles, cruelty and love.
