Directed by Lisa Formosa-Parmigiano & Kathleen Erny
The popular Italian tale of a puppet that can walk and talk like a real boy, with a long nose that grows ever longer when he tells a lie. Pinocchio is easily convinced to join immoral adventures, such as going to a puppet show instead of school, and an island that seems to be a place of paradise but really is a trap for naughty boys. In the end, Pinocchio learns that being good and obeying his father are the keys to becoming a real boy.
