Lon Landau is a promising Jewish set designer, whose life takes a dramatic turn during WWII. He's imprisoned in Kazerne Dossin in Mechelen, but he decides to remain optimistic and to do what he can best: build dream worlds.
LON is an ode to the power of imagination and shows how people keep their dignity in difficult times. With this animation documentary, a story of more than 75 years old comes back to life.
LON has been selected for the prestigious IDFA film festival in Amsterdam, where it competed for the prize in the competition category 'Best Short Documentary'.
