Yana and the Yeti

“Magical, beguiling, emotional and eye-wideningly beautiful”

By Pickled Image

Imagine being far, far from home and all alone, arriving in a remote snow-bound village surrounded by dense forest and strange noises. This is how Yana’s story begins. She can’t understand a word anyone says and the other children tease her with tales of mythical mountain monsters. Then things start to get really hairy…

Featuring exquisite music, arctic landscapes and a cast of extraordinary puppets, Yana and the Yeti is aimed at family audiences (5+). This is a dark, funny and poignant tale of a small child’s determination to be understood and her discovery that friends can come in the most unexpected shapes and sizes.
