Kirikou and the Sorceress

Rating: U

Age: 5+

When the tiny, headstrong Kirikou is ready to be born, he demands: “Mother, bring me into the world” – and, in this wonderfully original animated film, he never loses his hunger for life. Kirikou may be tiny, but he is mighty, and his fellow villagers sing his praises as he helps them fix their problems. When the village is threatened by the evil sorceress Karaba, who has made all the men disappear, it is little Kirikou who is entrusted with the task of putting a stop to her wicked ways. Beautifully animated landscapes and folk songs bring this traditional African tale to life.
