Director: Simon Rouby • France

In this vibrantly animated odyssey, a young boy ventures outside the forbidden cliff walls of his secluded West African village in 1916 in search of his older brother. He will journey across land and sea and, eventually, find himself struggling to survive in war-torn Europe. Rendered in a striking blend of 2D backdrops and sculpted, laser-scanned characters, Adama is a stirring tale of adventure and courage for the whole family.
