Piazza Grande: Special Family Evening

La famosa invasione degli orsi in Sicilia  (The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily)

France, Italy  ·  2019  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  82'  ·  o.v. Italian

It all begins on the day Tonio, son of the bear king, is abducted by hunters on the mountains of Sicily… The king decides to invade the plains inhabited by man in order to get his son back.


The debut full-length feature from Italy’s greatest illustrator, Lorenzo Mattotti, based on the 1945 children’s book by Buzzati. Picking up on topical themes, from respect for the environment to the need for peaceful coexistence in civil society, the artist gives full rein to his creative imagination. Showing the influence of both the Italian figurative tradition and the montage theory of Eisenstein, Mattotti creates a refined gem of contemporary animation.
