Experience the gorgeous second feature from renowned French animator Jacques-Rémy Girerd. Created from an astounding 500,000 hand-painted frames of animation, Mia and the Migoo is a work of art, breathtaking to behold, with backgrounds that invoke Van Gogh, Monet, and Cezanne. Figures are outlined in pastel and bathed in rustic watercolors for a handcrafted look that bursts at the seams with painterly detail. The film 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. One night Mia has a premonition. So after saying a few words of parting at her mother's grave, she sets out on a cross continent journey, though mountains and jungles in search of her father, who has been trapped in a landslide at a construction site on a remote tropical lake. In the middle of the lake stands the ancient Tree of Life, watched over by innocent, bumbling forest spirits called the Migoo, who grow and change shape as they please, morphing from small childlike beings to petulant giants. The Migoo have been disrupting the construction to protect this sacred site and now together with Mia they join in a fight to find Mia's father and save the Tree, with the future of life on Earth hanging in the balance.
