“Khumba,” an animated feature film that tells the story of social rejection and the power of learning self-acceptance, will be presented free of charge in Moab on Saturday, June 14 at 2 p.m. at Star Hall, 125 E. Center St.

“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.
