Lila’s Book

Lila’s Book

The border that divides storybooks from everyday life dissolves in Colombian writer-director Marcela Rincón González’s marvellous animated adventure about a very special girl trying to find her way home. Lila is a character from a children’s book who suddenly finds herself caught in the world of her readers. The only person who can help Lila return to her rightful place is Ramón, the book’s owner, but he’s grown up now, and has lost interest in reading. Lila and her new pal Manuela are determined to convince Ramón of Lila’s plight, but in order to retrieve Lila’s book they must first travel across the treacherous Desert of Lost Memories. Lila’s Book is a tale of faith, memory and mystery, moving between worlds to discover the beauty of friendship and the comforts of coming home.
