Furthering the argument that San Antonio Museum of Art’s Family Flicks series is probably one of the best things you can do for/with your kiddos (or yourself, your friends, etc.) this summer, the latest installment features the French-Belgian animated film Zarafa, directed by Rémi Bezançon and Jean-Christophe Lie. In this touching and occasionally heart-wrenching tale, young orphan Maki, who has been sold into slavery, befriends a giraffe named Zarafa, who is also an orphan. Through a bevy of enchanting and harrowing adventures, Maki and Zarafa prove to be each other’s strongest allies. This excellent movie, aside from being a pleasure to watch, can provide valuable insights into friendship, loneliness, otherness, family and even some of the darker realities of the world, like slavery and a slew of other abuses committed, all too often even today, with impunity in the face of a world that only seems just for certain select groups.
