After escaping the clutches of a slave trader, a bold ten-year-old Sudanese boy befriends a young giraffe and a kind Bedouin, who takes them on a splendid journey via a hot-air balloon as far as the palace of King Charles X of France.
The plot of the film has a grandfather telling his grand kids the story of Maki, a young boy who escapes from slave traders, befriends a giraffe (the title character), cross the desert, meet a pirate, and a few other things on a trip that takes him from Africa to Paris.Written by
I loved the animations , colors & the variety of cultural references , it's visually appealing & the Story has good theme referencing Slavery, honesty & loyalty but the killing part of this Feature animation is the historical faults . I find it really annoying & dishonest to disrespect the historical context , and it really degrades the beauty of the movie & hurts the feelings of the citizens of the countries you referenced in the Movie . Besides the distortion of history in the mind of the young or even the adult who doesn't necessarily have an idea about history of those areas of the world !
