“Marona’s Fantastic Tale” by Anca Damian will be screened at Kids Euro Festival, in Washington, D.C., at AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center, on Sunday, November 3, @ 11.00 am. The movie is in French with English subtitles.
Romanian director Anca Damian brings the stunning character design of Belgian artist Brecht Evens to life in this beautiful animated tale told from a pup’s perspective. Marona is a mixed-breed Labrador whose life leaves deep traces among the humans she encounters. After an accident, she reflects on all the homes and different experiences she’s had. In this beautiful and deeply emotional story of an average dog and her extraordinary life, Marona’s memory journeys into the past, as her unfailing empathy and love brings lightness and innocence into each of her owners’ lives (Note adapted from GKIDS). DIR/SCR/PROD Anca Damian; PROD Ron Dyens, Tomas Leyers. Romania/France/Belgium, 2019, color, NOT RATED.
