MONUMENT is a hand drawn animated film written, directed, animated and produced by Alain Delannoy. This independent production was inspired by thematic elements found in the filmmaker's French Canadian heritage and has proven to be his most challenging and ambitious projects to date. Produced over a span of five years, four thousand handcrafted drawings were created to compose and ultimately complete this twelve minute long film. Without spoken language, MONUMENT follows the adventure of a young boy living within a large scale and imposing environment. He is propelled on a journey that consumes his life but in the end grants him a perspective in which he can find peace (or solace).
