The sales arm of Italy’s public broadcaster, Rai Com, has enabled Federation Kids & Family to have worldwide distribution rights outside of Italy to award-winning animated TV special The Star of Andra and Tati.
The Star of Andra and Tati Federation Kids Family 30Sep2019
The 26’ programme tells the true story of two sisters, Andra and Tatiana, who as children were deported to Auschwitz during World War II. Separated from their family, they were sent to a Kinderblok with their cousin Sergio. Their perseverance and vigilance coupled with the care of another sympathetic prisoner enabled the sisters to survive and were ultimately reunited with their parents in Italy. Andra and Tati’s story is intertwined with the experience of a modern-day school trip to the same concentration camp.

The Star of Andra and Tati is produced by Rai Ragazzi and Larcadarte in cooperation with the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (Miur) and directed by Rosalba Vitellaro and Alessandro Belli.

“The Star of Andra and Tati encapsulates an incredible story of endurance and survival in the form of a powerfully emotive and visually entrancing animation which targets kids who are old enough to understand the consequences of the war,” said Monica Levy, senior vice president, international sales, Federation kids and family. “History is told with finesse and empathy. We are delighted to have signed this deal and to share this unique special with our buyers.”
