Aunt Hilda (click for more info and online tickets)
French w English subtitles

  “World Hunger is Solved!” exclaims the antagonist in this beautifully rendered, hand-drawn animation. Motivated by money, the company Attilem grows biologically modified crops all over the world and it quickly replaces all other forms of food. The only natural plants left are the ones Aunt Hilda has been preserving in her huge green house. Is genetically modified food the answer we have been waiting for? Is Aunt Hilda ready to accept the future of botany? Is she really an Aunt? All these questions and more will be answered in the latest family film from the acclaimed French studio, Folimage creators of The Cat in Paris and OIAF 04 Grand Prize winner, Raining Cats and Frogs

«La faim dans le monde est terminée !”, s’exclame l’antagoniste dans cette animation, entièrement dessinée à la main et admirablement fignolée. Poussé par l’appât dugain, l’entreprise Attilem développe ses cultures génétiquement modifiées partout dans le monde qui remplacent rapidement toute autre forme de nourriture. Les seules plantes naturelles qui subsistent sont celles de Tante Hilda, préservées dans sa gigantesque serre.
Est-ce que la culture OGM est la réponse que nous attendons depuis toujours? Tante Hilda est-elle prête à accepter cet avenir pour la botanique? Qui est-elle vraiment? Toutes ces questions et plus encore trouvent leurs réponses dans le dernier film familial du célèbre studio français Folimage, par les créateurs du Chat à Paris et de la Prophétie des grenouilles, lauréat du Grand Prix de l’OIAF 04.
