Through a series of interviews with iconic artists from yesterday and today, Julian Starke’s documentary offers a take on French electro from the younger generation’s perspective. He tracks down the American roots of techno and house music, brings the era of illegal raves to life, and tells the extraordinary tale of French Touch, a music style that has played a pivotal role in the recognition of electronic music throughout the world.

Adagio-beated, mysterical and thrilling, this feature tells a story of many meaning layers and satisfies those who love fine art.

Film synopsis:

Le Tableau is a feature-length film using both animation and live-action and being made by senior French director – Jean-François Laguionie. The film has high concept and tells profound philosophical themes. The plot revolves around a group of half-drawn characters in a painting set off to search for the artist in order to ask why he did not complete the picture. This film has slow rhythms, colorful and full picturesque classic frames. After debuting in 2011, the film won “Best Feature Film” at 8th Festival of European Animated Feature Films and TV Specials.

A chateau, flowering gardens, a threatening forest, here is what, for mysterious reasons, a Painter has left incomplete.

Three kinds of characters live in this painting: the Toupins, who are entirely painted, the Pafinis, who lack a few colors, and the Reufs, who are only sketches.

Considering themselves superior, the Toupins take over power, chase the Pafinis from the chateau, and enslave the Reufs. Convinced that only the Painter can restore harmony by finishing the painting, Ramo, Lola, and Plume decided to go looking for him.

Throughout the adventure, questions will follow one after the other: What has become of the Painter? Why did he abandon them? Why did he begin destroying some of his paintings?

Will they one day know the Painter’s secret?
