ANIMATION

JOSEP (N/C 12+)

French illustrator Aurel investigates the life of the Catalan republican cartoonist and exile Josep Bartolí, who was detained by the Gestapo and sent to various concentration camps after crossing the border into France to flee the Spanish Civil War. Told through the memories of a dying elderly gendarme who encountered him in the French concentration camp, it follows Bartolí’s arrival in Mexico after jumping from a train transporting him to another camp. Once in Mexico he met Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, before living and working in the United States. With the voices of Sergi López and Sílvia Pérez Cruz, it won prizes at the Tokyo Anime Awards, Anima and the European Film Awards. It was also the recipient of the best animated film César and was part of the Cannes official selection last year.

“A delicate, thoughtful film, moving and real. Ending with a rampage of colour and life in Mexico – and a brilliantly sweary cameo from Kahlo” The Guardian
