Kirikou and the Sorcoress
The exceptional powers possessed by a young boy form the focus for this outstanding animated drama. The plot is based on stories that have entered into African legend as tales of a remarkably gifted child have been handed down through the generations. Physically strong, incredibly intelligent, and able to talk from an inexplicably early age, the boys talents are harnessed by local villagers in an attempt to lift a curse that has been placed on them. A noteworthy entry into the canon of animated features, KIRIKOU AND THE SORCERESS is an impressively rendered tale that should captivate young and old alike.
