Markers, pens, pencil smudges, scribbles on paper. An animated musical whose purpose is to celebrate the harmony that is created between colors, patterns, textures and sounds, in a symphony of creative and spontaneous energy to the rhythm of the drum cymbals.

A film with a musical touch that dances in an aligned and curved geometry. Shapes which are subject to movement, rhythm, decomposing, recreating themselves through a creative and free adventure, open to the title’s onomatopoeia: Poum Poum! Black and white, diversity of shapes, colour, pens and paintings fill the screen, empty it, trace an intermittent and expressive rhythm: everything on the drum! (Carlota Gonçalves)
