Zarafa

Emmanuel profiled the animated feature Zarafa a few weeks ago, leading up to its Berlinale debut and opening in France; I've learned that it'll also screen stateside - in NYC specifically, in March.

The 17th edition of Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, the Film Society of Lincoln Center here in NYC and Unifrance Films’ celebrated annual showcase of the best in contemporary French film, hits screens at The Film Society, the IFC Center and BAMcinématek, from March 1-11. More than two dozen New York premieres will be showcased during the series, including the aforementioned Zarafa as well as the award-winning sensation Intouchables, which I already alerted you to.

Directed by Rémi Bezançon and Jean-Christophe Lie, the 78 minute film is a beautiful hand-drawn work of animation about a 10-year-old named Maki and the orphaned giraffe, Zarafa, who go on an epic adventure from the Sudan, where Maki escapes from slave traders, to Alexandria, Marseille and Paris.

The family friendly film is in French with English subtitles.

It'll screen thrice - on the 3rd, 4th and 11th of March, so opportunities there for you to take advantage New Yorkers.

Here's a trailer (with English subtitles):
