Inspired by the true story of the first giraffe to arrive in France, Zarafa is a magical 2D animation exploring loyalty, love and freedom. Maki, a young boy on the run from slave traders, forms an unbreakable bond with an orphaned giraffe named Zarafa. When Zarafa is kidnapped and shipped to Paris as a gift to the King, Maki must fulfill his promise to protect her. Accompanied by a desert prince named Hassan and a balloonist named Malaterre, Maki travels across deserts, mountains and seas on a quest to free himself (and Zarafa) from the tyranny of slavery.

CineSeeds – Stimulating young minds through film
For the first time, HRAFF presents CineSeeds — an event for young people and their parents alike. The screening of our 2013 CineSeeds film will entertain, inspire and educate young people on human rights and social justice issues. CineSeeds is an opportunity for attendees to create opinions and develop an understanding of issues that will shape their future. With an entertaining introduction by our friends at PROJECT ROCKIT (an interactive, anti-bullying and leadership program) and a goodie bag to take home, the afternoon will be an unforgettable experience. Join the HRAFF team and the CineSeeds Ambassadors, who have worked to promote CineSeeds to their classmates, for this inspiring event and help us plant the seeds for a better world.
All proceeds from CineSeeds go towards supporting HRAFF’s Schools & Community Program.
