INTRO & Q+A w/ DIRECTOR JÉRÉMY CLAPIN AND PRODUCER MARC DU PONTAVICE

Los Angeles Premiere, presented in partnership with COLCOA French Film Festival

The most celebrated animated film so far this year, Jérémy Clapin’s I Lost My Body claimed the Nespresso Grand Prize in Critics’ Week at Cannes as well as both the Cristal for Best Feature Film and the Audience Prize at Annecy.

In a Parisian laboratory, a severed hand escapes its unhappy fate and sets out to reconnect with its body in this Cannes Critics’ Week selection. During a hair-raising escapade across the city, the extremity fends off pigeons and rats alike to reunite with pizza boy Naoufel. Its memories of Naoufel and his love for librarian Gabrielle may provide answers about what caused the hand’s separation, and a poetic backdrop for a possible reunion between the three. Based on the novel “Happy Hand” by Academy Award® nominee Guillaume Laurant (Amelie)
