Jean-François Laguionie
Born in October 4, 1939 in Besançon. French director of animated films and writer. Jean-François Laguionie is passionate about animation since his meeting with Paul Grimault, his professor for several years. After fifteen years of making short films, he received the Palme d'Or for short films at the 1978 Cannes Film Festival for "La Traversée de l'Atlantique à la rame", an animated film made with cut paper. After this success, he founded his own studio, La Fabrique.

A castle, flower gardens, a threatening forest, this is what a painter, for mysterious reasons, left unfinished. In this painting live three kinds of characters: the Toupins which are entirely painted, the Pafinis to which some colors are missing and the Reufs which are only sketches. Believing themselves superior, the Toupins take power, drive the Pafinis out of the castle and enslave the Reufs. Convinced that only the Painter can restore harmony by finishing the painting, Ramo, Lola and Plume decide to go searching him. Throughout the adventure, the questions will follow one another: what has become of the Painter? Why did he abandon them? Why did he start destroying some of his paintings! Will they ever know the painter's secret?
