Kirikou and the Sorceress was joint winner of the 2002 British Animation Award for Best European Animated Feature. Showing how tiny but brave Kirikou outwits a powerful sorceress, this enchanting adventure was inspired by the folk stories of Senegal. Writer-director Michel Ocelot’s fresh vision of Africa is a world away from Disney’s singing lions and features an authentic soundtrack by Youssou N’dour.

Available on: DVD, 35mm
