Raymonde is really fed up with peas, aphids, dirty panties and her kitchen garden to dig. After all, she would prefer sex, and love, and the immensity of the sky...

About the director

Sarah Van den Boom was born into a family of artists. Though she developed a keen interest in theatre, dance and illustration, she eventually began to explore animation. In 2005, she released her first film, the much-lauded short Novecento: Pianist based on a monologue for theatre by Alessandro Baricco. In the years following, she continued pursuing a career in animation, particularly in Hollywood where the studio Acme Filmworks commissioned her to do commercials. In 2009, Sarah completed The Skeleton Woman, a second promising animated short, which screened at some 50 film festivals around the world. In 2015, she is back with her third film, In Deep Waters, which is co-produced with the NFB.
