Princeton International Cinema Series at the Princeton Garden Theatre: “Liyana”

January 10, 2019, 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Under the guidance of acclaimed South African storyteller, Gcina Mhlophe, five orphaned children from Swaziland collaborate to craft a collective fairytale drawn from their darkest memories and brightest dreams. Their fictional character, Liyana, is brought to life in innovative animated artwork as she embarks on a perilous quest to rescue her young twin brothers. The children’s real and imagined worlds begin to converge, and they must choose what kind of story they will tell – in fiction and in their own lives.

Country of Origin: Swaziland, USA, Qatar,  1 hour, 17 minutes. Website. Directed by Aaron Kopp and Amanda Kopp
