Ari Folman

Where is Anne Frank (10+)

Edition 2021
99' - 2021 - Historical, Animated film - Dialogue: Dutch, French, English
Director: Ari Folman Composer: Ben Goldwasser, Karen O. With: Emily Carey, Ruby Stokes

Ari Folmans visionary and kids-friendly update of the story of Anne Frank focuses on Kitty, the imaginary friend in Anne's Diary.

Kitty, the imaginary girl to whom Anne Frank wrote her famous diary, comes to life in the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Her memories reawakened by reading the diary, believing that if she's alive, Anne must be alive as well, she sets out on a quest to find Anne. We follow Kitty as she travels across Europe and back to Anne Frank’s time, armed with the precious book, in search of her beloved friend…
"Waltz with Bashir director Ari Folman turns Frank's imaginary friend Kitty into a ghost on the run in Amsterdam. (...) A kind of fantasy reboot, reading the story through a contemporary lens and giving it a kind of YA identity." - The Guardian
