The Frédéric Gaillanne Foundation trains guide dogs for children with visual impairments. Her godfather is the filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet, who has directed a short film to support her.

Created in October 2008, the Frédéric Gaillanne Foundation is the first guide dog school for blind children in France and Europe. Based in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue in the Vaucluse, she trains dogs intended to accompany visually impaired young people from 12 to 18 years old.

These quadrupeds are Saint Pierre , a breed specifically created by the Mira Quebec Foundation , in Canada, from Labernois from crosses between Labrador-Retriever and Bernese Mountain Dog .

One of the sponsors of the Frédéric Gaillanne Foundation is none other than Jean-Pierre Jeunet , a filmmaker with several great successes in his filmography: The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain , A Long Engagement Sunday , The City of Lost Children … He recently produced a short film presenting the school and its mission, available on the YouTube platform and which we invite you to discover below.

He follows the paths of the puppy Philibert and a young girl named Anaïs , who became blind at the age of 13. Their destinies end up intersecting, after the passage of the canine by a host family and its apprenticeship at the Foundation school. Thanks to Philibert , Anaïs can now lead an almost normal life, walk around and discover. And beyond the guide dog-blind person relationship, a wonderful friendship was born.

This little film also benefits, as you will have noted, from the participation of actor-director Mathieu Kassovitz .
