The Weightless Traveller  

15:50 min   |   Canada   |  2010

Writer / Director : Eva Colmers

Without any possessions to tie her down, young vagabond Bo is light enough to take off - to the big city, the desert and the jungle. With street-smarts and a touch of her magic, she overcomes any obstacles.

Exciting visual storytelling combined with awesome shadow imagery and music make The Weightless Traveller a delight to watch!
