Kirikou and the Wild Beasts
(Kirikou et les bêtes sauvages)
Recommended for ages 7 & up
Little Kirikou, the quick-thinking, two-foot-tall star of the acclaimed animated film Kirikou and the Sorceress, is back! No problem is too big for tiny Kirikou; whether overcoming a beast threatening his village’s crops or hitching a ride with a giraffe through a magical jungle, our pint-sized hero is always one step ahead of his constant nemesis, the sinister sorceress Karaba. Based on traditional West African folktales, and with vibrant, gorgeously painted animations and a superb soundtrack by musicians Youssou N’Dour and Manu Dibango, Kirikou and the Wild Beasts shows it’s not age or size that matter, but the strength of one’s mind and heart.
