Since its warmly received premiere at the Cannes festival, My Life as a Zucchini has garnered accolades from around the world — including top jury and audience honors from Annecy, Melbourne and Angoulême. It was recently nominated for a Golden Globe and is currently under consideration for nomination in the Best Animated Feature and Best Foreign Language Film (for Switzerland) categories at the Oscars.
My Life as a Zucchini is produced by RITA Productions, Blue Spirit Productions, Gebeka Films and KNM in coproduction with Radio Télévision Suisse, SRG-SSR, France 3 Cinéma, Rhône Alpes Cinéma and Helium Films, with international sales handled by Indie Sales.
After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is befriended by a police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this at times strange and hostile environment. But with Raymond’s help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust and love, as he searches for a new family of his own.
