Folivari, Winds & Cyber Group Announce ‘Menino’ Series

Multi-award-winning animation production and distribution company Cyber Group Studios has joined forces with Didier Brunner’s Folivari and documentary production company Winds to co-produce a new hybrid animation and live-action series: Menino and the Children of the World.

Created by Brunner — known for his work on acclaimed films like The Old Lady and the Pigeons, The Triplets of Belleville, Brendan and Ernest & CelestineMenino and the Children of the World (52 x 7) follows a little animated boy named Menino who, in each episode, embarks on a journey to learn about the lives of real children in different, unique corners of the world. As curious as he is clumsy, Menino shows viewers the joy and wonder of a traditional meal in the remote mountains of western China, a trip in the Kenyan savannah or fishing from a canoe in the Indian Ocean.

Menino is aimed at children ages 4-7 and combines animation and live action, bringing together aspects from two acclaimed films into one series: the documentary On the Way to School, which won the 2014 Cesar for Best Documentary, and The Boy and the World, the Cristal winning and Oscar-nominated Brazilian animated feature by Alé Abreu.

Cyber Group Studios is handling worldwide distribution and will commence international presales at MIFA in Annecy.
