Cité du Vin (Wine Museum) - Le vin à a Conquête du Monde - (When Wine Conquered World)

The Mill


The Cité du Vin (Wine Museum) of the French city of Bordeaux has renewed its permanent exhibition and asked us to make an animated film of over 8 minutes, aimed at a mainly adult audience, explaining how mankind has taken wine and vines wherever he has gone to explore. We wanted to take visitors on an epic human journey over the seas through the centuries. Our goal was to create a continuous narrative of adventure using the ship shape of the room and the curved screen to give visitors a powerful experience.

In this odyssey, the wine tells its story in the first person. It delivers a unique and passionate testimony that takes visitors on a grandiose historical fresco.
