There is much that can be the subject of interpretation in “The Walk”. It is an atypical animated short. Sort of like “ultrasound animation” if I can invent a new term!
“The Walk” is written, directed and produced by multi-disciplinary artist Yoakim Bélanger entirely painted by hand with Chinese ink and pencils, six images per second requiring five years of creation. It shows women coming out of the shadows and walking toward a light source calmly at first then with clenched fists and screams as the music intensifies. It can be interpreted as you wish and the distributor sates that it is a “striking tribute to the feminist movement and female strength”. Could it also mean women walking towards the shining light of death? Could it mean the segregation and objectification of women and the pain it causes?
That’s part of the fun interpreting what it might mean. The animation and music is well synched and as a whole it is both creative and innovative and similar to another Quebec animated film “Archipelago” from Félix Dufour Lappière. It is presently showing during the 27th edition of Palm Springs Shortfest. At the 2021 Mecal Int. Short Film Festival in Barcelona it won the Grand Prize for Best Short Film of the Oblique Competition which includes all the atypical animated films. As to how you can view this short perhaps best to check with the distributor’s website travellingdistribution.com/film/la-marche-435.
