Summer in the Hood

An animated feature directed by Jean-Pascal Zadi & Louis Clichy, graphic design by Jean-Charles Mbotti Malolo


Kali, 13, leaves his home in Normandy for the first time to spend summer vacation in a housing project outside Paris. In Bondy, “la cité,” he’s a fish out of water: new slang, new music, new styles, new attitude. He’ll have to make a place for himself in this urban jungle, armed only with his sense of humor.
