Ozi, a new collaboration with GCI Films

Mikros Animation Paris & Bangalore is happy to announce a new collaboration on a new international feature animation project!

This is the story of Ozi, an orphan orangutan, who uses her influencer skills to save her forest and home from deforestation.

Supported by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions and multi-Academy-Award-winning producer Mike Medavoy, the feature aims to raise awareness around the issues our planet’s rainforests face due to growing levels of deforestation, and how this affects the ecosystems within.
