Someone a couple of days ago (I've inadvertently discarded the original
message) referred to the animated film "The Man Who Planted Trees" but with
incomplete and/or incorrect information.
"The Man Who Planted Trees/L'Homme qui plantait des arbres" by Frederic
Back of Canada is one of the most beautiful animated films ever made and
won the 1987 Oscar for Best Animated Film--as well as awards at festivals
around the world. It's done mainly in pastels, pencil, and crayon--not
clay, as the original posting claimed.
It's based on the short story of the same (French) title by Jean Giono.
