President Isimo’s motto is “Keep it clean.” He wants to create a beautiful world where there are no unsightly children. Paul is one of the “less-than-perfect” children who are rounded up and taken away. When he escapes, he joins with some of the “attractive” children who recognize the injustice of Isimo’s judgement, and they lead a movement to rid themselves of Isimo. This dystopian adventure offers humor, heart and action. “The Club of Ugly Children is an exciting adventure film full of thrilling chases that can be enjoyed by kids from the age of 6…But older children often understand the references to WWII and to regimes that don’t allow you to be who you are.” (Director Jonathan Elbers, European Children’s Film Association Journal, 2019) (TK)
