Le pas is a French animated short film directed by Piotr Kamler in 1975.
A square block is shown. After a while, a single rectangular sheet loosens from it, rolls itself, hovers over the block and merges with it before it floats away and sinks to the ground a little next to the block. As a result, another sheet is released from the pad and further sheets follow, whereby one level always consists of six sheets. The sheets detach themselves from one block in ever greater quantity and speed and pile up to form a second block. During their flight, the leaves touch, float around or interact with a ball. In the end, all of the sheets of the old block have formed a new block that looks like the first one.
Kamler studied in Warsaw before he came to France in 1959. Le pas is one of a series of abstract animated films that he made in France. The film was distributed by Les Films de la Rivière, L'Institut de l'Audiovisuel. The presentation of dynamic, visual motifs is central to the film. The music comes from Bernard Parmegiani, a central representative of French musique concrète .
Le Pas won the Grand Prix (later Cristal d'Annecy) of the Festival d'Animation Annecy in 1975 .
