MY LIFE AS A ZUCCHINI

by Claude Barras

After the death of his mother, a shy young boy is sent to live at an orphanage and begins to move past his grief.

Synopsis

Academy Award Nominee: 
Best Animated Feature

After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is befriended by a police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age. At first, he struggles to find his place in this at times strange and hostile environment. However, with Raymond’s help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust and love, as he searches for a new family of his own. From its debut in Director’s Fortnight at Cannes to winning audience awards at festivals around the world, this accomplished debut feature from director Claude Barras, based on a script from acclaimed writer/director Céline Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy), has been nominated for both an Academy Award® and Golden Globe Award® for Best Animated Feature. Brought to life through memorable character designs and expressive stop-motion animation, the story soars with laughter, sorrow, and joy, and stands as a testament to the resilience of the human heart.

The short film THE GENIE IN A TIN OF RAVIOLI will be shown along with MY LIFE AS A ZUCCHINI.
