Aroview: A stunning French animation based on a West African folktale in which a tiny boy, Kirikou, emerges walking and talking from his mother's womb and journeys to discover the source of the curse on his village.

With visuals based on the surrealistic jungle paintings of Henri Rousseau and a score by Youssou N'Dour, this is an exotic treat with an authentic edge. Winner of several prestigious animation awards. Available in both subtitled French and English versions.
