In a move similar to 2019’s “I Lost My Body,” the French-language animated film based on the Japanese manga series of the same name by Jiro Taniguchi called “The Summit Of The Gods,” premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and was later acquired by Netflix. It’s a gorgeously animated film filled with intense drama and universal themes. The writer and director, Patrick Imbert, was kind enough to spend time talking with me about his journey in making the film and all of the meticulous care that goes into crafting an animated film. Take a listen down below, enjoy and be sure to check out the film now streaming on Netflix.
