Jeremy Clapin's Palmipedarium is a moody, stylized short about a boy and his encounter with a rather strange duck and a rite of passage as he goes out on a hunting trip with his dad. The short, which has been making the festival rounds this year is based off that thin line we walk between reality and our imagination during childhood. Clapin also directed Skhizein, which won awards at Cannes and Annecy back in 2008 (Check it out after the break).
Simon knows about ducks quite well. They make noise, fly, swim, some even roll. Sometimes, it's a bit confusing and Simon gets lost.
