"The adventures of Little Mr Paper" is an illustrative and musical narration in which the little ones themselves are playing the leading part. The text is based on the adventures of Mr Paper by Elvis Peeters, who has won, last summer, a prize for children’s literature (de Zilveren Griffel) for this book. The music was composed by Bix Medard, especially for the children’s film festival Filem’on.
Bix aka Beatrix Fife, princess of the self-invented language, gives a warm sound to these funny and tender little stories, thanks to her voice and her flute. Medard aka Peter Clasen (electronics & guitar) is accompanied by Tariq with his double bass. But who is this little Mr Paper? Maybe you know it? Please try to wake him up together with Bix Medard !
