Sleeping Betty by Claude Cloutier
Princess Betty sleeps in a narcoleptic stupor. The king appeals to his subjects to wake her. A worthy Prince Charles lookalike has to leave his royal suburb to save the princess, but will Betty be wakened with just a kiss?
Drawn in India ink, this animation sets the Perrault classic in Claude Cloutier’s disjointed, anachronistic and playful universe.

she’s the camera’s
the sun for colored film.
her smile is like
clear light bouncing off
the darkness of the
mediterranean at nighttime.
we all know it,
when it’s working,
moves like sea water—
always going somewhere
