Wow that looks pretty awsome!
You don't see veryday films about Judaism in africa and the middle east. Especially not animation about it.
The animation and characters looks pretty unique.
Looking forward seeing it.

If you have the chance, you should also read the absolutely fabulously well done albums on which the film is based. They are available from Amazon(And I am not affiliated in any way).
If you can read them in French you should do that, and I guarantee that you will enjoy :-)

I would have loved to work on this film.
