“Kumba” follows the journey of a young zebra born with only half his stripes who is rejected by his superstitious herd and blamed for the sudden drought affecting the land. Khumba teams up with a wildebeest and ostrich to find a legendary waterhole where the first zebras got their stripes.
On his daring quest across the Great Karoo desert, Khumba meets a host of quirky characters and comes face to face with a tyrannical leopard in an epic battle to earn his stripes so that he can reunite with his herd.
The screening of “Khumba” in Moab is presented through a ollaboration between the Utah Film Center’s Tumbleweeds program and the Grand County Public Library. The 85-minute South African film, directed by Anthony Silverstone, is recommended for people of all ages.
