A Girl Named Elastika Guillaume Blanchet

Elastika is not like any other girl, because she is made of elastics. And because her universe is made of cork. Her journey is also one of a kind, as she jumps from one building to another, crosses an ocean, or travels to space by holding on to a firework rocket.

A brief, intoxicating, chocolaty homage to Tim Burton. The fine art of patisserie meets masterful stop motion, not to mention a small nod to Eadweard Muybridge, the father of Zoopraxis-scope. Culinary cinema of the finest quality, not just for cineastes – for the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.
