Spike Jonze: Mourir Aupres de Toi

Love among the bookshelves.

Editor's Pick

Spike Jonze teamed up with fashion designer Olympia Le Tan and French filmmaker Simon Cahn to create this haunting stop motion animation. A Parisian bookshop is the setting for Mourir Aupres de Toi (To die by your side), the story of a felt skeleton whose love story takes place among Le-Tan's illustrations of iconic first-edition book covers. According to Nowness, the collaboration came about after Jonze asked Le Tan for some of her work, and she asked for a film in return. The team spent six months animating the 3,000 pieces of felt Le-Tan had cut by hand.
