Des Cowboys et des Indiens( 2018 ) 67 min Documentary

Fabrice du Welz's documentary on the Belgian eclectic comedy duo and the creators of Vincent Patar and Stéphane Aubier, Cowboys and Indians: The Cinema of Patar and Aubier. (Des cowboys et des indiens: Le cinema de Patar et Aubier. With screenwriting friend Luc Jabon, Fabrice du Welz, himself a filmmaker with a unique style, has chosen to spotlight the duo Patar and Aubier, who he considers as a couple of deeply Dada, punky, sincere, fierce yet tender heroes. From Cowboy to Ernest and Celestine, Patar and Aubier's 70-minute work demonstrates great narrative qualities and a constant search for new animation techniques. But where does this all come from? This is the question du Welz has tried to answer through their documentary which traces the career of this creative duo and the myriad of personalities surrounding them making up a united

collective all working towards a common idea of selfless and decidedly political incorrect creation.

once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but finds herself lost on a l

onely intersection. Out on the road, she soon is joined

by Elvis, a loud-mouthed but actually shy dog, and Anton,

a donkey who wants to become famous as a show-act in

a circus – disguised as a zebra. When neurotic rooster

Eggbert completes the squad, the runaways
hijack a red van, which turns out to be a wanted

getaway car.  Soon they are mistaken for a notorious gang of art thieves haunting the once peaceful village. For sharp little Marnie, their mission is clear: to capture the real culprits and restore their honour.
A film about courage, about finding yourself and about true friendship.
Based loosely on Grimms
"The Bremen Town Musicians" a modern,
hilarious road movie is told.
