MIA AND THE MIGOO
France - dir. Jacques-Rémy Girerd
Animation, English, 2008, 92 min.
This breathtaking animated adventure from Jacques-Rémy Girerd, winner of Best Animated Feature at the European Film Awards, was created from 500,000 hand-painted frames of animation with backgrounds that invoke Van Gogh, Monet, and Cézanne. Featuring superb performances from John DiMaggio, Whoopi Goldberg, Matthew Modine, Wallace Shawn, and James Woods, Mia and the Migoo is a fable-like journey of a young girl who must overcome her fears on a quest to find her father and save the world from destruction.
