Created from an astounding 500,000 hand-painted frames by renowned French animator Jacques-Rémy Girerd, Mia and the Migoo is a work of art, breathtaking to behold, with backgrounds that invoke Van Gogh, Monet and Cezanne. The film is a fable-like journey of a young girl who must overcome her fears on a quest to find her father, who has been trapped in a landslide at a construction site on a remote tropical lake. In the middle of the lake stands the ancient Tree of Life, watched over by innocent, bumbling forest spirits called the Migoo. The Migoo have been disrupting the construction to protect this sacred site – and now, together with Mia, they join in a fight to find Mia’s father and save the Tree, with the future of life on Earth hanging in the balance.
