Madagascar is a diary of a journey that redraws the trip of a European traveller confronted with Famadihana customs, a Malagasy custom which means ‘the stirring of the bones’… The pages of the diary turn, then the drawings come to life, and we cover the luxuriant landscapes of Madagascar before being introduced to the Malagasy culture. This film has received numerous awards and was nominated for an Oscar in 2011 in the animated short films category.
