Aesthetic :
The Flying Pyrenees aims to bring an imagination around nature, in the form of short films.
The idea is to deal with the theme of nature but in a non-realistic way; through dreaminess, through a strange, creative, offbeat, poetic, supernatural, experimental, plastic treatment...
When nature shifts, unreal, original
Filmic journeys between poetic fantasy, dreamlike experimental....
Elves ans Leprechauns are welcome
An elephant in the stable
Over-ex Under-ex hold hands
And why should nature always be green?
Why would rivers always flow to the sea?

It is a desire for travel, for a change, for surprise, for aesthetic research and narrative, change of scenery. Surprising nature!
