Three sisters are facing an impending disaster: the imminent flooding by the Sea of the lands where they live. In the midst of such chaos, the sisterly union is shaken up and each of the sisters experiences the imminence of death, in their inner selves, in a different way.
Frédéric Even and Louise Mercadier are two self-taught directors: he graduated in general literature and comparative studies at the Sorbonne; she studied social science at Paris I University and sculpture and animation at the beaux-arts ateliers in Paris. After their studies, they became interested in animated films in stop-motion. Fascinated by this technique, they decided to make their first self-produced animated short film, Metamorphosis, a loose adaptation of Kafka’s short story. The film was quite successful at festivals. They then wrote the script for a second stop-motion animated short film: Sororelle. In addition to their personal projects, Frédéric is a high school literature teacher in Seine-Saint-Denis, France, and Louise leads audiovisual initiation workshops for various audiences. For example, she led for a year directing workshops in migrant workers’ homes in Paris and created an animated film in volume with children hospitalized in three European hospitals. Sororelle is their first professional film.
