Jeanne’s life is going in circles. The young introvert still lives with her fun-loving mother and works as a cleaner in an amusement park. But her discovery of the brand-new main attraction, the cutting-edge “Jumbo” carousel, leaves Jeanne mesmerized and head over heels in love. The ride communicates with its blinking lights, and when its sweetheart curls up in the thermoplastic seats, its gear oil gushes like a waterfall. Jumbo is a heartfelt coming-of-age fantasy and a gallant call for tolerance: No carnival ride will ever be the same again!

Zoé Wittock
Originally hailing from Belgium, Zoé grew up traveling the world. From Africa to Australia, she exposed herself to a variety of cultures and extreme conditions, always hungry for more stories to tell. At seventeen, Zoé flew out to France, where she slowly began to grasp what filmmaking was about as she explored as many different set jobs as she could, while writing and directing her first student short films. In 2008 she was accepted into the directing program of the American Film Institute, during which she was awarded a scholarship for excellence in directing for her short film This is not an Umbrella (2011). Her most recent short film A demi-mot (2014) was broadcast on OCS (France) and Netflix. Her first feature film, Jumbo, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2020
