United States

Opening night of the First Inaugural Children’s Film Festival brings to Philadelphia this stirring and gorgeously hand-animated film, based on the true story of the first giraffe to travel to France. After freeing himself from slavers and fleeing across the moonlit savannah, young Maki meets Hassan, a nomad, and Zarafa, an orphaned baby giraffe. When the Pasha of Egypt orders the giraffe to be taken as a gift to the King of France, the three board a hot air balloon and embark on an adventure-filled ride over North African skies, through the bustling port of Marseilles before landing in Paris. After the king accepts his gift with minimal enthusiasm, Maki becomes determined to get Zarafa back home to Africa.
