Ann Arbor Korean Independent Film Festival Screening: Leafie, A Hen Into The Wild
Friday October 5, 2012: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
The Nam Center and the U-M Screen Arts and Cultures Department, in association with the Museum of Modern Art and The Korea Society, presents the Ann Arbor Korean Independent Film Festival October 4 - 7. While many of the films will be screened on the UM Campus, this 2011 delightful animated film (which made box office history by drawing the largest audience for a home-grown animated film in South Korea) will be screened at AADL.
Based on a popular children's book, the film (which is not rated) is the story of freedom, will and instinctive motherly love of a hen as she raises an adopted duckling.
Leafie lives on a chicken farm among hundreds of other hens, but she dreams of a life outside her cage. She manages to escape from captivity using her wit, but then finds much danger in the outside world. When Leafie finds an egg in the wild she decided to take care of it - - but when it hatches, the new young duckling thinks that Leafie is its mother!
