French Premiere.

Inspired by the book of the astronomer Harlox Shapley, Of stars and men follows the quest of a child (representing mankind) to find its place in the universe, through themes such as space, matter, meaning of life ... the bias graph, inspired by the cartoon, the colors and the playful and poetic make this film an atypical work.

The film was recently restored by the MOMA and will be subtitled in French on the occasion of the Feast of animation.
