Day of the Crows (Le Jour de Corneilles) by Jean-Christophe Dessaint (Canada, 2012, 95 min.). A father raises his son in the wild and warns him never to venture beyond the forest. One day, the boy’s father is injured and he must leave the woods in search of help. Entering a neighboring village, he befriends a young girl and experiences the wonders civilization offers. This lushly animated film explores the blurred lines between animal and human, nature and civilization, and the realms of the living and of spirits. But underneath is a simple story of a father’s love and a boy’s brave struggle. All ages welcome.
