Sleeping Betty - Claude Cloutier — 2007
SLEEPING BETTY from National Film Board of Canada on Vimeo.
Princess Betty sleeps in a narcoleptic stupor. The king appeals to his subjects to wake her. A worthy Prince Charles lookalike has to leave his royal suburb to save the princess, but will Betty be wakened with just a kiss?
Drawn in India ink, this animation sets the Perrault classic in Claude Cloutier’s disjointed, anachronistic and playful universe.
Production : National Film Board of Canada (nfb.ca)
