With the voices of Azize Diabaté Abdoulaye, Pascal N'Zonzi, Oxmo Puccino
12 year-old Adama lives in a remote village in West Africa, sheltered by the Cliffs. Out, beyond, lies "The Land of Breaths", the kingdom of wicked spirits hungry for war. When Samba, his elder brother, suddenly vanishes from the village, Adama decides to set off in search of him. His quest takes him over the seas, across France, to the hell-on-earth battle of Verdun, in World War I. The year is 1916.
Inspired by the true stories of West Africans who were conscripted by France to fight in World War I, director Simon Rouby’s debut film features impressive and distinctive animation techniques that combine sculpture, 2D and 3D animation to express an enormous spectrum of place and emotion. An unforgettable journey which will be adored by adults as much as by children.
ADAMA won the Work In Progress competition of France’s prestigious Annecy Animation Film Festival in 2014.
In French with English subtitles.
Next Screening: September 17 , stay tuned!
