MIA AND THE MIGOO
(France/Italy-2010-directed by Jacques-Rémy Girerd)
From the distributors of the Academy Award nominated The Secret of Kells, comes the gorgeous second feature from renowned French animator Jacques-Rémy Girerd. Created from an astounding 500,000 hand-painted frames of animation, Mia and the Migoo is a work of art, breathtaking to behold, with backgrounds that invoke Van Gogh, Monet, and Cezanne. The film is a fable-like journey of a young girl who must overcome her fears on a quest to find her father and save the world from destruction. Mia and the Migoo features the voices of Whoopi Goldberg, Matthew Modine, Wallace Shawn and James Woods. (93 min)
