AninA is a fantastical journey into the world of a ten-year-old girl who, following a playground skirmish, is given the weirdest punishment in the history of weird punishments. The palindromically named Anina Yatay Salas lives in Montevideo and attends elementary school, where her classmates make fun of her because of her name. She has a best friend, but also a girl with whom she doesn’t get along at all: Yisel. One day she fights with Yisel, and so her problems begin: the school principal gives them both an intriguing punishment, a suspended detention. Anina spends her days in that suspension, a period of time with particular tension and questions, and her voiceover guides us as she comments on life with her nice parents, meals, the eyes of gossipy neighbors, homework, and childhood feelings, joys, and fears. Kids, their parents and grandparents will all enjoy this wonderfully animated film. AninA was Uruguay’s 2013 official submission to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film.

"A quirky, warm, simply-but-beautifully animated picture with a look that seems hand crafted from materials gently worn and loved." —New York International Children’s Film Festival
