Irish Film Institute -LES CONTES DE LA NUIT


From celebrated French animator Michel Ocelot comes his new feature Les contes de la nuit. Ocelot fans will already be familiar with his sparkling stories and jewel-like imagery from features such as Kirikou and The Princes’ Quest. Les contes de la nuit is set in a little cinema, where three storytellers meet every night to act out various tales set in forests and cities of gold populated with sorcerers, fairies and powerful kings. This beautiful shadow animation has delighted audiences at festivals around the world.

If you like this film, then you’ll love the films in the IFI Family Festival in July. To be in with a chance to win free tickets to the IFI Family Festival, bring along a drawing or cut-out of your own shadow character to be judged on the morning of the film.
