This French/Belgian film relates the early 19th-century story of how Zarafa, the first giraffe ever to be kept in a French zoo, came to live there with the assistance of a 10-year-old Sudanese boy and a Bedouin who rescues the boy from slavery. This film takes a tougher and more historically accurate look at colonialism and slavery than you may be accustomed to seeing in an animated work.
