Spain, 2016, 100 min, 2K DCP, Dir. Oskar Santos, Rated PG and recommended for children ages 8+, Spanish with English subtitles
A follow up to NYICFF 2013 audience favorite Zip and Zap and the Marble Gang, no familiarity with the original is necessary to jump right into this boisterous and stylized Spanish caper. As a punishment for accidentally setting a toy store on fire, Zip and Zap’s parents forgo their traditional Christmas holiday and drag the boys along on a work trip. Something is amiss when a sinister storm lands them at the grand, cliff-side mansion of Miss Pam, a children’s literature-loving headmistress for a freewheeling home for children separated from their parents. With sweeping views of the dramatic Basque coast and settings that evoke stories from the greats from J.M. Barrie to Jules Verne, the latest chapter in the Zip and Zap saga is equal parts comic book antics and mysterious adventure. Recommended ages 8+
