From mind of renowned graphic novelist Jacques Tardi comes this riveting sci-fi adventure set in an alternate steampunk world of 1940’s Paris. After her scientist parents mysteriously disappear, young April and her cat, Darwin, find themselves at the center of a shadowy and far-reaching conspiracy, and on the run from government agents, bicycle-powered dirigibles, and cyborg rat spies. Presented in French language and English dubbed versions (see individual showtimes for details).

“Drawing inspiration from everything from Dickens to Jules Verne to Miyazaki, April and the Extraordinary World is colorful and funny, but with more than a hint of melancholy and sociopolitical commentary.” - Fantastic Fest
