Azur & Asmar [Azur et Asmar]

Azur et Asmar

Directed By: Michel Ocelot

April 18, 2006 / Arabic French / 99 mins

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.
