DescriptionFASTER PRINCESS uses a mixture of live action, cut-outs and pop-up animation to tell the story of a young woman preparing herself for the ball...a ball with a difference. 'In reclaiming our mythology and redefining it we can have the pleasure of laughing at our contradictions...It's more than just what is contained in the film, it's the result of a series of little works about 'killing the prince'. Of course the film could be seen as pure indulgence, even narcissism. The reason I felt strong about making it is because I know I'm not the only woman with this sort of fantasy or experience; they are the foundations of every woman's past and rediscovering them can answer questions.' (Martine Thoquenne)
