Le Vélo De L’éléphant is a French short about an elephant with the dream of having his very own bicycle. Despite the negative connotation of the circus elephant on a tiny bike, this tale is more about freedom and liberation. Made from paper cutouts and the occasional pen and ink illustrations, this piece is a great heart-warming watch to start the New Year! Make sure to read on for another short by Schukina.
