Les Oiseaux Blancs Les Oiseaux Noirs (2003)

Les Oiseaux Blancs Les Oiseaux Noirs is an African tale about wisdom, animated by Florence Miailhe. The story is based on a book by Amadou Hampaté Bâ about the work of Tierno Bokar and his African fable of good and evil. It explores how people live with good or bad feelings and how it is better to have good feelings towards others.

We are introduced to the two birds almost effortlessly as images merge together, break apart and metamorphose into different shapes or people. At one point as birds break away into a flock it is a genuine moment of sheer beauty. The black birds represent bad thoughts and words, white birds the opposite.
