Azur & Asmar [Azur et Asmar]
Directed By: Michel Ocelot
Ocelot presents a stunningly beautiful animated tale about encountering and transcending difference. He draws upon Arabic artistic styles to turn the tables on French immigration debates as Azur and Asmar take turns being strangers in each other’s homelands.
