Tournées 2017 – Film: April and the Extraordinary World

CinéCola/Tournées 2017 presents the film April and the Extraordinary World November 1 at 7 p.m. at Columbia College’s Spears Center for the Arts. This animated adventure film ushers the viewer into an alternate reality in which the Bonapartes still rule France, electricity was never discovered, trees are a distant memory, and a steam-driven cable car connects Paris to Berlin. Based on the blend of urban grit and historical fantasy found in the drawings of Jacques Tardi, one of France’s most influential graphic novelists of the last half century, April and the Extraordinary World is not only imaginative entertainment for the whole family, but a slyly feminist statement, an ode to science, and an earnest plea for world peace. Dubbed in English. Free.
