Printed Rainbow (2006)
Indian animator Gitanjali Rao won the Kodak Short Film Award, Small Golden Rail and the Young Critics Award with Printed Rainbow at Cannes in 2006. It is a beautiful and touching film that switches between drab and vivid colours as it tells the story of a lonely woman - and her cat - who lives in the dreary city but dreams of an exotic, Indian adventure when prompted by the pictures on matchboxes. As well as acting, Rao has made another animated short film, set in Mumbai, calledTrueLoveStory.
