Ciclic Animation welcomes Fragments by Daniella Schnitzer, a one-month postgraduate grant residency in partnership with La Poudrière for the development of her animated short film in stop motion.
Daniella Schnitzer is an Israeli director and illustrator based in France. In 2015, she graduated from the Academy of Arts and Design in Bezalel and in 2019, she graduated from the Poudrière in Valence (France).
Based on a personal story and her grandfather’s diary, Fragments tells the stories of the pioneers and the Zionist dream before the creation of the State of Israel. But the film highlights the nostalgic and fantasized vision of this era, far removed from a much more complex reality.
This project has received a writing grant by Ciclic Centre-Val de Loire and a residence programme financed by Ciclic Centre-Val de Loire in partnership with La Poudrière. Director, Daniella Schnitzer, will be in residence from April 12th to May 7th.
