Israeli director Ari Folman has taken the familiar story of Anne Frank and daringly made it his starting point for an exploration of modern global injustices, asking what we have learnt from her story. It is another stunning work of animation from the director of the celebrated for Waltz with Bashir (2008), which was based on interviews with veterans of the 1982 Lebanon invasion. Where is Anne Frank? is set in present day Amsterdam, is set in present day Amsterdam, where the main character Kitty (voiced by Ruby Stokes), the imaginary friend to whom Anne dedicated her diary, suddenly comes alive. She must stay near the diary or she becomes invisible. Not knowing of Anne’s fate, she sets out to find her in the modern world. When she wanders out into the street, she is told that Anne Frank is everywhere, because streets, museums and libraries have been named after her. But it turns out that while the name lives on, the spirit with which she lived does not. The film asks a provocative question: is Anne Frank now primarily a tourist attraction

An inventive riffing animation which takes 'The Diary Of Anne Frank' as a jumping-off point to explore contemporary thematic parallels, Ari Folman's latest is a bold attempt to combine family entertainment and politics
