A film by Hélène Giraud, Thomas Szabo, France/Belgium, 2013, 89’, animation

In a small, idyllic clearing, the remains of a hurriedly abandoned picnic spark a war between two tribes of ants, the prize being a box of sugar lumps. A chubby young ladybird finds herself involved in the battle, making friends with one of the black ants and helping her to save the anthill from the assault of the red ants, formidable warriors led by the terrifying Butor.

In collaboration with Alice nella città
