Wolf Erlbruch, ‘a careful and caring visionary’

Wolf Erlbruch is the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award laureate for 2017.

‘Children do not need pink elephants or cute cats. They want more interesting stories that are new to them.’

Here it is – the perfect guide to Wolf Erlbruch's unique image world. Say hi to some of his characters! This masterpiece film was shown at the ALMA award ceremony earlier in May. Produced by our friends at Small World: direction and cuttings by Johan Björnsrud, Martti Ekstrand did the animations, voice over by Mia Hjelte and Sofia Johansson as scriptwriter and project manager.
