Mona is a princess who lives a lonely existence in a dilapidated castle by the sea. She is cruelly mistreated by a pair of rats until a unicorn named U appears to protect her. In time Mona grows to be a very beautiful girl. One day a troupe of travelling and noisy musicians, the Wéwés, settle in the nearby forest, and among them, the charmer Kulka.

Films on the Green is a free outdoor French film festival produced annually in New York City parks by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and NYC Parks. Initiated in 2008, Films on the Green has become a not-to-be-missed free event amid the vibrant New York City summer cultural offerings. Over the years, the festival has brought classic and contemporary French cinema to New Yorkers, each season’s films spanning different themes from environment or musicals to literary adaptations. This year’s festival celebrates love “à la française”.
