After an accident, Marona, a small Labrador mix with a big heart, reflects on all the homes and humans that have welcomed her throughout her life. Brilliantly told through vibrant colors and dazzling animation, this charming tale follows Marona’s adventures as she meets and is adopted by fascinating characters, including a circus acrobat and a sweet young girl with an eye patch.

Director Anca Damian (Crulic – The Path to Beyond) breathes Marona’s world into being, using an inventive mix of cut outs, 2D, and 3D animation techniques to impart the wisdom of an average dog with an extraordinary life.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Hsiang Chin Moe, Chair of BFA Animation at the School of Visual Arts.

Made in Paris and Bordeaux.
