The August CineSeekers Film Club movie is the highly acclaimed dazzling animation, Kirikou and the Men and Women directed by Cherished French animator Michel Ocelot taking place on Saturday 29th August at Queen’s Film Theatre, Belfast.

Michel Ocelot returns to his popular series of Kirikou films with yet another dazzling animated film that's a striking alternative to so many contemporary animated movies. In keeping with his other fairy-tale inspired stories this new film tells the further adventures of his hero, Kirikou, in his village in Africa, as this inventive and resourceful child helps his fellow villagers overcome a number of difficulties. Kirikou's kindness and energy win out every time. The visual style of the film is quite beautiful and the story's focus on the relationship between a child and their community makes for essential viewing.

The CineSeekers Film Club is a monthly film event for young people. Based in QFT, the club's ethos is to promote and celebrate a diverse and varied range of international children's films. By providing our young audience with a regular outlet for world cinema, the aim is to develop and nurture a broader appreciation, understanding and love of film; as well as celebrating the stories, peoples and cultures from around the globe.
