Our friends at the Young Audience Program of the French Institute and the Alliance Française are hosting a special screening of Azur & Asmar: The Princes' Quest.
Tickets are free to NYC Public school students!
Gorgeous and mesmerizing, this film by French animation legend Michel Ocelot eschews computer-generated imagery. It renders a storybook-style animation that never stops delighting with its ornamental detail, range of color, and exotic story.
"The movie has a terrific flair for arabesque patterning, a gemlike luminosity of surface and a handsome, classical cast of mind." - The New York Times
In French & Arabic with English subtitles
A Q&A with a special guest will follow the screening.
