Synopsis:

From its debut in Director’s Fortnight at Cannes to winning audience awards at festivals around the world, this accomplished debut feature from director Claude Barras, based on a script from acclaimed writer/director CeĢline Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy), was nominated for both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.

After his mother’s sudden death, Courgette is befriended by a police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this often strange and hostile environment. Yet with Raymond’s help and his newfound friends, Courgette eventually learns to trust and love, as he searches for a new family of his own.

Brought to life through memorably bold character designs and expressive stop- motion animation, My Life as a Courgette soars with laughter, sorrow, joy, and above all, stands as a testament to the resilience of the human heart.
