CALAMITY, a childhood of Martha Jane Cannary (85′, France/Denmark, 2020 – V.O.S.I.)
The space dedicated to animated feature films for families returns to Imaginaria. This year, at the end of the festival, “Calamity, a childhood of Martha Jane Cannary” directed by Rémi Chayé will be screened. The film is loosely based on the childhood of Calamity Jane, the most famous female gunfighter of the American Golden Age. A story full of suspense, courage and tenacity.

1863, on a westbound convoy, Martha Jane’s father is injured and so she will have to drive the family wagon and take care of the horses. Learning is difficult yet Martha Jane has never felt so free and, since it is more practical for her to ride a horse, she does not hesitate to wear pants but this gesture makes her too bold in the eyes of Abraham, the leader of the convoy. Accused of theft, Martha must escape. Dressed as a boy, looking for evidence of her innocence, she discovers a world under construction where her original personality will assert itself. An adventure full of dangers and full of encounters that, step by step, will reveal the character of the legendary Calamity Jane.
