(16 mins 45 secs, Switzerland)


Ciel Sourdeau is an emerging French director and music composer who studied fine arts and cinema at Geneva High School of Arts and Design. He is a paper-mâché fanatic and aspires to play with the classical codes and rules of cinema, using humour as a gateway to surrealist parallel universes.


Desperate for love and with her kingdom at the mercy of a fierce dragon, Queen Clotaire puts out a call for assistance. The courageous Crystal Cowboy must master mischievous musical gnomes and the lure of an enchanted forest if they wish to save their homeland and prove their worth. Making use of a stylistic approach that defies the codes and conventions of traditional cinema, this film will immerse you within its dreamlike fantasy.
