Annecy 2021: Energy, joy and a luminous horizon for the 2021 poster!

„Annecy loves supporting creators. It’s an integral part of our DNA. Jean-Charles Mbotti Malolo is a regular at Annecy and his latest film Make It Soul, presented at the 2018 Festival, summarised the festive and energetic spirit of the event. We will remember when Jean-Charles and his friends invaded the stage to dance joyously as the credits finished rolling out, carrying the spectators along for the ride. This poster is also a reminder of this magical moment that only Annecy holds the secret.
Marcel Jean, Artistic Director

The Annecy Festival really wanted to call upon Jean-Charles Mbotti Malolo again to do the 2021 poster.

After a completely online 2020 edition, the tribute to animation from the African continent and the Festival’s 60th anniversary were rescheduled for this year, we wanted this explosion of colours and energy again that brought the lakeside to life in our poster last year. Let’s hope they can once again vibrate throughout the city this June!

The Annecy Festival team is working on a hybrid edition that will be held from 14th to 19th June. We are in the process of finalising the on-site and online offers, and various access formulas that will be presented when accreditations open in April.

I am immensely honoured to work on the poster again for the 2021 edition.

I would really have loved to collaborate a second time with Simon Roussin, like last year, but he was already committed to a personal project.

I felt the need to do this poster on paper, maybe to push myself to return to a more traditional art form on a daily basis, but also because screens have taken up even more place in our lives since the current health crisis began.

The theme is similar to 2020, so I kept to our guideline, the pantsula, a traditional South African dance that symbolises the modern view I have of Africa.

I wanted to link this with a unique character: an older woman, independent, free and joyous, who is enjoying the sun’s rays reflecting on the lake.

Last year’s Festival was online, let’s hope we can all join the pantsula dancers on the Annecy pontoons this June 2021!

Jean-Charles Mbotti Malolo

Jean-Charles Mbotti Malolo

Born in Lyon in 1984, Jean-Charles studied at the École Émile Cohl in the filmmakers’ section and graduated in 2007 with a commendation from the jury.

His graduation film The Heart is a Metronome won the prize for Best First Film at the Hiroshima Festival in 2008. Drawing is his prime passion, but dance has always been a part of his means of expression. He joins the Stylistik dance company in 2008. In June 2012, Jean-Charles learns sign language so he can write and direct The Sense of Touch, under the friendly watchful eye of Emmanuelle Laborit. This second short film, combining the aesthetics of dance and sign language, receives more than 20 international awards, among over 60 festival official selections. Les Mots is the first stage show choreographed by Jean-Charles – a solo for two performers – that sees the light of day in early 2017. He continues this working journey using non-verbal communication. His last film, Make It Soul, with Simon Roussin’s graphics, is designed to pay tribute to the essence of African-American music, by reviving Solomon Burke and James Brown. It was nominated for the César for Best Short Animation Film 2020. He is currently working on a hybrid documentary series (animation and live shots).

Täglich einen Kurzen: „Kapaemahu“ by Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, Dean Hamer, Joe Wilson [FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION | BEST ANIMATED SHORT]

Director’s Statement

I am Kanaka — a native person descended from the original inhabitants of the islands of Hawaii. Our survival as indigenous people depends on our ability to know and practice our cultural traditions, to speak and understand our language, and to feel an authentic connection to our own history.

That is why I wanted to make a film about Kapaemahu, and to write and narrate it in Olelo Niihau – the only form of Hawaiian that has been continuously spoken since prior to the arrival of foreigners. It is not enough to study our language in an American classroom, nor to read about our history in an English language textbook. We need to be active participants in telling our own stories in our own way.

I am also mahu, which like many indigenous third-gender identities was once respected but is now more often a target for hatred and discrimination. I want our young people to understand that the ability to embrace both the male and female aspects of their spirit is not a weakness but a strength, a reason to rejoice not to fear.

Whether it is protecting Mauna Kea or Kapaemahu, I shall always believe in what historian S. M. Kamakau articulated in 1865 : He makemake ko’u e pololei ka moolelo o ko’u one hanau, aole na ka malihimi e ao ia’u I ka moolelo o ko’u lahui, na’u e ao aku I ka moolelo I ka malihini.

“I want the history of my homeland to be correct. The foreigner shall not teach me the history of my people, I will teach the foreigner.”

FOR YOU CONSIDERATION | BEST ANIMATED SHORT
Long ago, four extraordinary beings of dual male and female spirit brought the healing arts from Tahiti to Hawaii and imbued their powers in four giant boulders. The stones still stand on Waikiki Beach, but the true story behind them has been hidden – until now.

The Evolution of the Producer Role in Visual Effects: A Conversation with Patricia Rose Duignan
When Rose Duignan started working for George Lucas on the original Star Wars film, there were no visual effects producers.
