Mabel's Saga / Le voyage de Mabelle

Top of page

Mabel is juggling the demands of work, teenagers and an elderly mother. Now, she is confronted with a new challenge: hot flashes and chin hairs! Before you can say "estrogen," purple-haired Mabel finds herself the unassuming heroine of her own adventure... the adventure of aging.

Mabel's Saga is a touching, funny film that celebrates menopause as a natural transition. The film blends colourful computer animation with a lush musical landscape, offering a reassuring look at one of the most important passages in a woman's life--and showing that aging brings its own rewards. A film without words.

This DVD also includes The Making of Mabel's Saga, a seven minute documentary about the reasons for making this film and the techniques used by animator JoDee Samuelson in executing the production, including animation style, music, and sound editing. In English with option of French translation.
