My Life as a Zucchini


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.


“My Life as a Zucchini” is brought to life through striking character designs and expressive stop-motion animation. The story soars with laughter, sorrow, and joy, and stands as a testament to the resilience of the human heart.

A new English language version stars Will Forte, Nick Offerman, Ellen Page, and Amy Sedaris, and had its world premiere at Sundance 2017.
