Matilde is a girl who is the victim of a terminal illness who is looking for the stone that will allow her to fulfill the fantasy of becoming a horse and, perhaps, even cheating death. A film loaded with imagination that was part of the French Film Tour in its twenty-second edition.


All the backgrounds were made in watercolor and drawings with coffee. They were digitally scanned and assembled to make 3D camera movements.

The horses were drawn and animated with a digital tablet, then the textures previously made in watercolor were edited in the background.
