Tales of the Night

[pg]

France 2012, 84 mins
Director: Michel Ocelot

For his latest feature-length gem, the inimitable French animation legend Michel Ocelot (KIRIKOU AND THE SORCERESS) composes a series of silhouette vignettes, each inspired by a different fable and presented in stunning stereoscopic 3D.

One night in an old Parisian cinema a young boy and girl meet up with an elderly projectionist to share and act out stories. With the help of a little bit of magic, we are transported into a miscellany of captivating worlds, each more enchanting than the last.

All six shorts share a distinct fairy-tale narrative thread, but there is an originality and contemporary edge to Ocelot's vivid palette that will delight young and old alike.
