Event hosted by: Moomins on the Riviera
A special, for-your-consideration private screening of Moomins on the Riviera took place at SVA Theatre on December 9, 2015.
In 2010 Finnish film producer-director Hanna HemilÃ¤ and French animation film director-producer Xavier Picard joined forces and collaborated on developing Moomins on the Riviera. Based on Tove and Lars Janssonâ€™s books â€œMoomin, the complete Tove Jansson Comic Stripâ€, the film celebrates the universally loved characters in their original context.
â€˜Moomins on the Rivieraâ€™ is created in a unique hand-drawn animation technique inspired by the original comic strips. The animators are using a reduced color scale for the backgrounds to carefully adapt the strips for a modern audience while maintaining the original feel of the black-and-white comic strips.
A film for all audiences, the Moomins embrace cross-cultural understanding and tolerance. Addressing universal themes such as finding joy in the small things in life, family, and optimism, â€˜Moomins on the Rivieraâ€™ is sure to resonate with viewers around the world.
