Barbee Butcher

France/Czech Republic/The Netherlands 2009, 1' | Director, Screenplay, Production Sophie Laguës | DoP, Sound Sophie Laguës, Bas Van Huizen | Editor Sophie Laguës, Bas Van Huizen, Ales Suk

Amusing plasticine animation about a green monster that pulls a Barbie doll apart bit by bit so that it can use the “spare parts” to turn itself into a femme fatale – with unexpected results.


Sophie Laguës was born in 1973. After studying Philosophy and German Literature at university, she turned to filmmaking, especially animated film. She studied at the FAMU, the Film and TV School of the Academy of the Performing Arts in Prague, and at the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU). Barbee Butcher is her second film.
