A new film from the director of adult animated tales “Waltz With Bashir” and “The Congress” that follows the journey of Kitty, the imaginary friend to whom Anne Frank dedicated her diary.
A fiery teenager, Kitty wakes up in the near future in Anne Frank’s house in Amsterdam and embarks on a journey to find Anne, who she believes is still alive, in today’s Europe. While the young girl is shocked by the modern world, she also comes across Anne’s legacy.
“The convention of jumping between time periods can make the plot a little cluttered but the film’s worth as an educational tool for pre-teen audiences is inarguable.” ~Tara Brady, The Irish Times
”[Folman’s] new film doesn’t need to make sense of Anne Frank’s diaries – they speak for themselves – but instead builds a bridge to the present day, where Folman finds a troubling deafness to the very lessons, and alarm bells, that her legacy ought to have guaranteed.” ~Tim Robey, The Telegraph
