NY PREMIERE - The New York International Children's Film Festival is proud to present April and the Extraordinary World for its New York premiere. The setting is Paris, 1941. A family of scientists is on the brink of uncovering a powerful longevity serum when they are suddenly abducted by a mysterious force, leaving their young daughter April behind. Ten years later and without any trained scientists, Paris is stuck in the Steam Age. April lives alone with her best friend, a talking cat named Darwin, carrying on her parents' research in secret. Soon she is mixed up in a far-reaching conspiracy and on the run from government agents. Whip-smart and determined, she continues her quest to find her parents and discover the truth behind their disappearance. Extraordinary, indeed, April's world is a steampunk paradise filled with cleverly outlandish inventions and gadgetry, designed by Jacques Tardi in the same simple but stunning style of his iconic graphic novels. From the producers of Persepolis. The film will be shown in French with English subtitles and is suitable for ages 8 to adult. Don't miss this fantastic event!
