CinéKids: My Mommy is in America and She Met Buffalo Bill

This bittersweet and thought-provoking film is based on an award-winning book, and won the Special Jury Award at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Screening followed by an art activity. Knowledge of French is not required. Designed for ages 5–10+.
