GKIDS Secures North American Rights to My Life as a Zucchini
Import animation distributor GKIDS has recently acquired the North American rights to the Annecy Crystal winning stop motion animated feature Ma vie de Courgette/My Life as a Zucchini, through a deal brokered by Eric Beckman of GKIDS and Indie Sales’ head of sales and co-founder Nicolas Eschbach.
Based on a script by Celine Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy) and directed by Claude Barras, My Life as a Zucchini focuses on an orphan who is befriended by a police officer and sent to an orphanage, where he tries to find his own place in the seemingly hostile and strange environment. With the help of his newfound friends, the orphan eventually learns how to trust and love, as well as find a new family he can call his own.
My Life as a Zucchini is produced by RITA Productions, Blue Spirit Productions, Gebeka Films and KNM, in co-production with Radio Television Suisse, SRG-SSR, France 3 Cinema, Rhone Alpes Cinema and Helium Films, with international sales handled by Indie Sales.
