Synopsis


This short animation describes the process of publishing research using the example of a discovery in a soft matter physics laboratory. The film, made entirely using paper, is a poetic illustration of a scientist’s excitement when they eventually believe that their idea will work, followed by the long process of research and writing up that leads to the publication of a scientific article.

Tënk's opinion


At last – a clear, simple, genuinely scientific film in which we learn whilst watching true cinema… This is an animated film, admittedly, but it’s still cinema, a high-flying animated documentary with its pixilation stop-motion technique (where objects are filmed image by image) dating back to the cinema’s earliest origins. We could’ve done with a film like this to explain scientists’ difficulties studying the Covid 19 virus. When watching this movie, we also understand that it seems scientifically impossible for a certain professor from Marseille to have published 836 articles between 1995 and 2020… But controversy aside, this is a great film to show children and perhaps inspire a vocation.
