Zarafa Arrives in Los Angeles

Attendees of this week’s City of Lights, City of Angels French Film Festival (April 22, 11 AM) will have a chance to see Remi Bezancon and Jean Christophe Lie’s beautiful new animated feature Zarafa, as the film makes its North American big screen debut.

Zarafa is based on the true story of France’s first giraffe, as it tells the story of a young Sudanese boy named Maki, who escaped from slave traders during the early 19th century, and the baby giraffe he befriended.

The animation for Zarafa was done by France’s Prima Linea Productions, which is responsible for Fears of the Dark and U:

Bezancon told the L.A. Times that the wanted the film to be 2D traditionally animated, just “like the old Disney movies.” He added, “It was like going back to my childhood.”

The City of Lights, City of Angels French film festival will also feature a screning of George Melies’ A Trip to the Moon (Wednesday the 18th at 2 p.m.) and Bibo Bergeran’s A Monster in Paris (Saturday the 21st at 5:30 p.m.)
