Kenya, UK, 2010 , 50 min.

This year’s Family Film Day showcases a program of charming animated African folk tales. Tinga Tinga Tales is inspired by traditional animal stories from Africa and Tingatinga artwork, named for the Tanzanian artist Edward Saidi Tingatinga. From these engaging tales, we learn why the frog croaks, why the crocodile has bumps, and why the woodpecker pecks!

Baba Wagué Diakité, artist and writer, will serve as host and storyteller.
