When the Day Breaks -- Description du film [en anglais] :
« When the Day Breaks is the charming, bittersweet story of Ruby, the pig, whose life takes an unexpected turn after she witnesses the accidental death of a stranger. With deft humour and finely rendered detail, the film illuminates the links which connect our urban lives, while evoking the promise and fragility of a new day. The film, described as a four-year labour of love by the filmmakers, is exquisitely crafted, using pencil and paint on photocopies which gives it a textured look reminiscent of a lithograph or a flickering newsreel. In When the Day Breaks, the ordinary -- a lemon, a toaster, a chance collision on a street corner -- is endowed with a visceral power. »
