Le Petit Nicholas and Q&A

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


What are we waiting for to be happy? Winner of the Cristal at Annecy 2022, this is a tender film full of nostalgia and resilience, which will delight adults and their children alike.

Somewhere between Montmartre and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Jean-Jacques Sempé and René Goscinny lean over a large white sheet of paper and bring to life a mischievous and endearing boy, Little Nicholas. From schoolyard games and fights to summer camp prank and camaraderie, Nicholas lives a merry and enriching childhood. As the adventures of Nicholas and his friends unfold, the boy makes his way into his creators’ workshop and light-heartedly questions them. Sempé and Goscinny will recount the story of their friendship, career, and reveal a childhood filled with hopes and dreams.

The screening is followed by a Q+A with co-director Benjamin Massoubre hosted by Cardiff Animation Festival's Nia Alavezos.
