“Joann Sfar is a force in the French comic-book industry,” says Neal Sokol, who helped organize the screening. “Luckily, we were on the same wavelength with the Sie FilmCenter and the film’s American distributor GKIDS, and now Denver is in for a real treat of dazzling artistry by a master storyteller.”
The film will be shown at 2 p.m. today at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Avenue; it will be introduced by Rabbi Séverine Sokol, Neal’s wife and the first French woman of North African origin to be ordained as a rabbi. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased in advance at www.denverfilm.org. For more information, visit the website or call 303-595-3456.
