The Zigzag Kid directed by Vincent Bai (Netherlands/Belgium) 2012 is the opening night film of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 33. It will screen first on Thursday night 25 July 2013 at the Castro Theatre with three subsequent showings: Cinearts at Palo Alto Square (Palo Alto) Sunday 4 August 2013, California Theatre (Berkeley) Tuesday 6 August 2013, and Smith Rafael Film Center (San Rafael) Monday 12 August 2013.
Nono is a thirteen-year old boy with a vivid imagination who sets off on a journey to solve a mystery that haunts him. The script is based on a popular novel by David Grossman. A delightful movie with wide appeal that includes an array of eccentric characters and picturesque locations including the French Riviera. While Nono (Thomas Simon) is definitely the lead character of this comic adventure film, a chanteuse named Lola Ciperola is played by Isabella Rossellini.
