Storytellers and Story Keepers

Presented by the Chicago International Children's Film Festival

The stories, tales, and folklore in this collection of shorts span generations and locales. In one French short, a magic tortoise grants a fisherman and his wife ever-increasingly lavish lifestyle accoutrements, until they get their comeuppance. In another short from the Republic of Congo, beware of false friends, no matter how charming! In the last short, the familiar Arabian Nights tale is vividly portrayed on screen in Scheherazade's familiar quandry - can she keep spinning her fabulous stories?
