FILM: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS MY LIFE AS A ZUCCHINI
12 Jun 2017 | 11.00am - 12.10pmBook Tickets
When nine-year old Zucchini’s alcoholic mother dies, he is taken to an orphanage filled with misfits who, like himself, have been dealt a rough hand by life. Little does he know, they will soon become his family, from his crush Camille to the father-figure policeman Raymond. Based on a best-selling young adult novel and adapted for the screen by Céline Sciamma (Tomboy, SFF 2011), My Life as a Zucchini is an unusual, affirming but honest film that calls on its young audience's ability to empathise with lives far tougher than their own. They’ll come out heartened, strengthened and more resilient from the experience – and so will the adults who take them.
