“My Life As A Zucchini,” from director Claude Barras and screenwriter Celine Sciamma, is the kind of film Leslie Sullivan can’t wait to share with an audience.

Based on the 2002 Gilles Paris young adult novel, the 2016 French-Swiss stop-motion animated feature, which was nominated for Best Animated Feature Film at last month’s 89th Academy Awards, follows Zucchini (whose real name is Icare, the French version of Icarus), a bashful 9-year-old boy with a pale face and a thick mat of blue hair, whose life is about to change.
