While on the run from an evil slave trader, spirited 10-year-old Maki meets a young giraffe he names Zarafa. Together the pair begin an incredible journey that takes them from Africa all the way to Paris. This hit at the 2013 Tumbleweeds Film Festival takes you on an unforgettable adventure from the desert sand to the snowy mountains as it tells an uplifting tale of everlasting friendship.

Presented with support from Listen Technologies.

To enhance our young viewers’ appreciation of foreign-language movies, we have readers read subtitles aloud. We play the readings through individual headsets, to allow those who do not require the service to experience the film without hearing the reader. We have a limited number of headsets, and offer them on a first-come, first-served basis to young people only.
