*Walter Tournier (1944) is the most important figure in animated cinema from Uruguay. His films, made equally for children, adolescents and adults, are known for the natural way in which their stories—narrated with seemingly simple but masterfully crafted animation processes—are redefined with a deep sense of humanism, ironic and provocatively ingenious humor, and identifiable collective references. His techniques include hand-drawn animation, the use of metallic figures covered in different materials, and the occasional use of the computer for postproduction editing.
