Set during World War II in the French Alps, Belle and Sebastian is based on a beloved 1960s French TV series featuring resourceful young Sebastian and the giant mountain sheepdog he calls Belle. Sebastian is a lonely six-year-old boy who dreams of the day his mother will return from America—the place that his adoptive grandfather tells him she’s gone. He finds needed companionship with “the beast” that local farmers are convinced is killing their sheep—an enormous sheepdog that quickly proves anything but dangerous, instead becoming the boy’s best friend and protector. With Nazis rooting out the Resistance fighters helping Jewish refugees cross the border, Belle and Sebastian soon prove their courage. 


Sponsored by TV5Monde and the French American International School.
