Tournées 2017 – Film: My Life as a Zucchini

CinéCola/Tournées 2017 presents the film My Life as a Zucchini November 19 at 2 p.m. at the Columbia Museum of Art.  Though bravely realistic, Swiss director Claude Barras’s charming stopmotion animated film is an unexpectedly uplifting look at childhood tragedy. After his alcoholic mother’s death, nine-year-old Icare—known to his friends as Zucchini—is placed in a group home where he soon forms alliances and rivalries with a group of kids in equally difficult circumstances, including the son of drug addicts and the daughter of a deported refugee. But it takes the arrival of the recently orphaned Camille for Zucchini to know he has found a friend for life. Dubbed in English. Free.
