AVRIL ET LE MONDE TRUQUÉ
2015, CHRISTIAN DESMARES AND FRANCK EKINCI, FRANCE, 105 MIN.

From the creators of the Academy Award-nominated PERSEPOLIS comes this hand-drawn animated adventure based on the graphic novel by Jacques Tardi, and boasting the neo-Victorian technology of steampunk in a flight of fancy reminiscent of both Jules Verne’s sci-fi novels and thedystopian vision of Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS. All the world’s scientists and inventors have mysteriously disappeared, leaving an oppressively smoke-shrouded Paris stalled in time circa the Industrial Revolution. The orphan April and her strangely endowed cat Darwin go in search of theformula that will reverse a 19th-century laboratory experiment gone horribly awry. April is kidnapped to a bizarre and wildly imaginative parallel sphere, only to to discover the animal kingdom’s ambitious scheme for world domination. In French with English subtitles at indicated times, with voices by Marion Cotillard, Jean Rochefort, and Olivier Gourmet. In English at indicated times, with voices by Susan Sarandon, Paul Giamatti, Tony Hale, and J.K. Simmons. DCP digital.
