I saw this animated short film at IFC Center New York City. It was in "2011 Academy Award Nominated Animated Short Film" event. Even though this film didn't win the Oscars, it is my favorite. It gives you such as sincere feeling of the diary voyage. The artwork is so beautiful and comes in many different medium. It is so uniquely creative. See it yourself.

MADAGASCAR, CARNET DE VOYAGE – This film is a journey diary that redraws the trip of a European traveller confronted with Famadihana customs. As pages of a diary turn, colorful pencil sketches come to life, revealing the majestic rolling landscapes of Madagascar, and acquainting the audience to the people of the Malagasy culture. (French, 15 min., Director: Bastien Dubois)
