Rose and Violet

Director: Luc Otter, Claude Grosch Year: 2011 Run Time: 26min

This NFB animated short film tells the story of two conjoined twin sisters who are recruited as star acrobats in the world’s biggest circus. They seem bound for glory, but when a new strongman joins the troupe, a conflict turns tragic. Filmmakers Luc Otter and Claude Grosch employ a clever combination of 2D and digital cut-outs and clay animation in their exploration of the circus realm.
