VSAFF is proud to present our first-ever animated feature — Khumba.
Khumba is a young zebra born with only half his stripes. When his superstitious herd blame him for the sudden drought affecting the land, Khumba seeks to find the legendary waterhole where the first zebras got their stripes.
Featuring the voices of Liam Neeson, Steve Buscemi, Richard E. Grant and more!
When it was released in China, Khumba entered the top ten at number five, grossing over $6 million and had over a million theatrical admissions.
Hugely entertaining for the whole family.
Runtime: 1 hour 30 minutes
Director: Anthony Silverston

“The second feature from the South African animation studio Triggerfish, is a wondrous and slightly deranged story about oddballs embracing their differences.”
— Miriam Bale, NEW YORK TIMES
“Beautifully rendered landscapes and entertaining vocal performances.”
— THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“ … the animators distinguish themselves with the weathered richness of their geographically unmistakable setting.”
— Guy Lodge, VARIETY
