Thanks to the SODEC’s support, Syon Media will soon launch the production of Alouette

Alouette tells the story of Lou, a young, outgoing and cheerful architect who lives by herself in Montreal. Her life was dramatically turned upside down the day a strange being with a broad smile attacked her in the streets. This assault left her with a barely noticeable wound on her forehead. This wound became infected and started growing disproportionately, making her daily life unbearable. Ravaged by shame and anger, Lou remained cloistered in her home until one day she found the strength to come to terms with her condition and ask for help.

This animated short is a co-production between Syon Media (Canada) and Bagan Films (France). The screenplay and production will be handled by Myriam Obin, the music by Benoît Charest and the international distribution by Syon Media and Next Film distribution.
