Louis’ Shoes

2020 | France | Animation | French with English Subtitles | 5min | PG

Director: Théo Jamin, Kayu Leung, Marion Philippe, Jean-Géraud Blanc

Synopsis:

Many of us have items of comfort – a gadget or an accessory or a literal safety blanket – something that keeps us calm and grounded. For Louis, it is his shoes. He often changes schools, but not his shoes.
This animated short student-film tells the story of Louis, 8-and-a-half-year-old child with autism who arrives in his new school. As he is about to introduce himself to his new classmates, something happens to his shoes and he must then navigate his thoughts and actions carefully.
