Boasting colorful stop-motion animation and an emotional story reminiscent of Truffaut, My Life as a Zucchini is uniquely appealing. Big-eyed, blue-haired nine-year-old Icare, who prefers the nickname Zucchini, is left alone after the sudden death of his mother. Taken by a friendly policeman to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age, he at first struggles in the strange and sometimes hostile environment. But Zucchini discovers he can make new friends, eventually learning 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 Annecy, Melbourne and Angoulême, this accomplished debut feature from director Claude Barras, based on a script from acclaimed filmmaker Céline Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy), has received an overwhelming response from audiences worldwide. Brought to life through memorable character designs and expressive stop-motion animation, the story soars with laughter, sorrow and joy. In the original French with English subtitles. Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature! Preceded by Claude Barras’ 8-minute short, “The Genie in the Ravioli Can.”
