Inspiring Young Imaginations: “Zambezia”


Info   N$ 5 for the youth and N$ 15 for adults


We start the new screening year with a movie for the whole family, Zambezia (also known as Adventures in Zambezia), a South African 3D computer-animated comedy-drama adventure film produced by Triggerfish Animation Studios.

About the film:
When a spirited young falcon named Kai learns of Zambezia, the fabulous city of birds, he leaves his remote country home against the wishes of his father (voice of Samuel L. Jackson). But when his dad is captured by an evil lizard who plans to attack the city, Kai must learn the importance of teamwork if he’s to rescue his father, save his new friends and help keep Zambezia lizard free.

In 2013 Zambezia won the Award for Best Animation at the South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTA) and the Best Animation Award at the 9th Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA). It also won the Best South African Feature Film at the Durban International Film Festival in 2012.
