ABOUT THE FILM:

In the Land of Moonstones is a story about first love, first loss, and The Little Prince, as seen through the eyes of an 11-year-old girl. While visiting her beloved Russian grandma in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, our main character falls in love for the first time with a boy her age. Then, she experiences the joys and sorrows that follow.

Told partly in live-action, partly in animated drawings, this film is an ode to intergenerational friendships, memories, and the first loves that never really leave us.
