PEPITA & MAX Short Film – Sept. 2017 FAMILY FEEDBACK Film Festival

PEPITA & MAX, 6min, Family/Animation 
Directed by Rahel Ilona Eisenring

Pepita and Max have all sorts of adventures. Monsieur Raf, Max’ toy giraffe, is always with them. When Max loses Monsieur Raf while hiking, the little boy can’t find sleep. Not even the Alpsegen, the lullaby of the mountains, which is meant to protect animals and people on the alp, helps. The peculiar tradition gives Pepita an idea: what works for Swiss alp-cows could also save a giraffe through the night.
