"Los Pintin al Rescate"
("The Pintins to the Rescue")
Directed by Franco Bittolo
The Pintins are a family of penguins who live near
the Atlantic Ocean on the coast of Argentina. When humans kidnap the
youngest child and put her in a zoo, the family embarks on an adventure to
save her. In addition to being an action-filled romp, this feature also
addresses diverse environment and social concerns unlike the average
animated fare. Winner of the 2001 Best Animated Film Award by the
Argentinean Film Critics Association. In Spanish with English subtitles.
