Est. Reading: 2 minutes
The French Institute of South Africa and the Alliance Française of Johannesburg invite you to the Dibuka Francophone Multimedia Library for a screening of Claude Barras' stop-motion animated film, My Life as a Zucchini. Bring the kids along for a Francophile experience and a whole lot of fun! 

What Is It?

Two Saturdays per month the French Institute of South Africa and the Alliance Française of Johannesburg host a free French film screening for the public. This July, they invite you and the kids to come along for Claude Barras'stop-motion animated masterpiece, My Life as a Zucchini.

After his mother's disappearance, Courgette is befriended by a police officer Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this strange, at times, hostile environment. Yet with Raymond's help and his new-found friends, Courgette eventually learns to trust and  find true love.

This charming French film will tug at your heart strings. Filled with poignant moments of raw honesty, My Life as a Zucchini is not a typical children's film. Grappling with the harsh realities of an orphaned childhood, this is exactly the kind of film audiences should be flocking to. It is highly intelligent and will stay with you for a very long time. Definitely worth a see. There are English subtitles too, so don't worry about studying up on your French. Plus, the kids will especially enjoy watching the movie on the comfortable bean bags in the cinema loft.
