From renowned animator and storyteller Michel Ocelot comes a dazzling and magical film certain to delight children, families and animation fans of all ages. Silhouetted characters set off against exquisitely detailed backgrounds bursting with color and kaleidoscopic patterns, as the film weaves together six exotic fables each unfolding in a unique locale, from Tibet to medieval Europe to an Aztec kingdom to the African plains, and even the Land of the Dead. In Ocelot’s storytelling, history blends with fairytale as viewers are whisked off to enchanted lands full of dragons, werewolves, captive princesses, sorcerers and enormous talking bees – and each fable ends with its own ironic twist. Presented in partnership with Slab Cinema, the Family Flicks screening is precede by art-making activities (5:30-7pm) in SAMA's West Courtyard.
