Join us for family-friendly screenings of APRIL AND THE EXTRAORDINARY WORLD (“Avril et le monde truqué”). From the producers of the Academy Award-nominated PERSEPOLIS and the mind of renowned graphic novelist Jacques Tardi comes a riveting sci-fi adventure set in an alternate, steampunk world. In Paris, 1941, a family of scientists is on the brink of discovering a powerful longevity serum when all of a sudden a mysterious force abducts them, leaving their young daughter April behind. Ten years later, April (voiced by Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard) lives alone with her cat, Darwin, and carries on her family’s research in secret. But she soon finds herself at the center of a shadowy and far- reaching conspiracy, and on the run from government agents, bicycle-powered dirigibles and cyborg rat spies.
“APRIL AND THE EXTRARODINARY WORLD is a visual delight, an animated French steampunk adventure that is smart, exciting and wonderfully weird.” (Arizona Republic)
“While the film tells a rollicking, sometimes barbed story about oppressive governments, secret labs, selfishness, and the point where science meets ethics, it’s the world-building that really delights.” (Buzzfeed)
