This stop-motion gem about the resilience of the human heart won the Grand Prize and the Audience Award at the 2016 Annecy International Animation Film Festival. After his alcoholic mother dies, a boy nicknamed Zucchini (or “Courgette” in French) is befriended by a police officer and brought to a foster home, where he meets other orphans his age. Written by Céline Sciamma (“Girlhood” and “Tomboy”), Barras’ debut feature strikes a remarkable balance between the joys and sorrows of childhood.
