Produced by the NFB, Canal+ and Sacrebleu, Comic Strip Chronicles is a collection of shorts that celebrates the strong affinity between two art forms: the comic strip and the animated film. Inspired by moments of everyday life, this quartet of three-minute films showcases the playful imaginations of renowned artists from Quebec (Guy Delisle, Zviane) and France (Aude Picault, Lewis Trondheim, Jean Matthieu Tanguy). Sweet Childhood While packing up before a move, cartoonist Zviane comes across an old audiocassette that plunges her back into her childhood fantasies and perceptions of the world. Based on a real-life recording, Sweet Childhood is a playful animated short with two narrators—namely, the Zvianes of past and present. Guided by her own voice from 30 years ago, the celebrated author of Les deuxièmes employs a range of techniques to evoke the naïve charm of children’s drawings, giving graphic form to her quirky, youthful narrative. The result is a hilarious short that questions just how “sweet” childhood really is. A slice of everyday life, courtesy of the Comic Strip Chronicles.
