MOKO, THE YOUNG EXPLORER

52 x 4'30 - kids & family

MOKO is a young boy full of curiosity and endowed with an overflowing imagination. His one and great challenge is to discover the whole wide world in its every corner. 

 

Thus, he travels through the African, the Asian, the European and both American continents.

 

His quest is perpetual and he does not hesitate to constantly question everything that meets his eyes : stars, rainbows, tornados, seasons…

 

MOKO is an adventurer who longs to meet new people, deal with new situations and feel new emotions. He is both attracted and scared by all the natural phenomenons which surround him.

 

All his adventures are presented in the shape of stories which are, at the same time, naive, poetic, aesthetic ; they are told with humor, and are capable, furthermore, to provoke serious thoughts on the world around us, as well as on the natural phenomenons which are presented with an explanatory unit.
