Lady Travellers


Between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th women begin to travel on their own. Lady Travellers is the series that traces the extraordinary adventures of these women, pioneers of a new world, through their written diaries: the narration takes shape thanks to a graphic reconstruction inspired by shadow play, which revisits the places and events through black silhouettes of real actors filmed in studio and edited into the frame against vivid backgrounds. Each episode is dedicated to the adventures of a single explorer, mixing travel diaries, graphic reconstruction, archive material -photos taken by the female travellers, drawings, notes - and interviews with experts, creating a visual pastiche unique to the genre.
