Revisit a Classic: Princes and Princesses (PG*)

Framed Film Festival 2018

Princes and Princesses

A titan of animation, Michel Ocelot creates an enchanting world of princes and princesses from lands near and far. 

Michel Ocelot – maker of the Kirkou films, Azur and Asmar and Tales of the Night – creates beautifully intricate silhouettes to tell short stories of princes and princesses, of daring-do and distant lands.

Bringing to mind the work of Lotte Reiniger, this is a rare opportunity to see one of Ocelot’s early works not released theatrically in the UK on the big screen.

Reza Ben Gajra gives a lively introduction to the animation techniques that Ocelot uses to create his fantastical onscreen stories.

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
