Gala Premières and special events

"Taking his lyrical and pedagogical brand of animation all the way back to the Belle Époque, Michel Ocelot offers up a pleasantly meaningful journey through French cultural history. 'Dilili in Paris'  is a delightful cultural mystery, but ultimately it's driven by Dilili's sincere and feisty presence. As a black girl in a nearly all-white Paris, she's a source of both disdain (a few people call her a "monkey") and curiosity, especially when she speaks in her impeccably polite French. And although the movie can sometimes feel too instructional for its own good, Dilili makes for an amusing chaperone who can move us with her pure candor." (The Hollywood Reporter)
