Shorts for Middle Ones

Shorts for Middle Ones

Culture Night Free Screening / 6PM / Ages 8+ Yrs

Fri 21 Sep 2018 6PM Main Auditorium // FREE

This collection of short films is a patchwork of experiences – funny, sad, thrilling, emotional and, in one particular case, a tad stomach-churning (in a very tasteful way, of course!). Polar bears cross their disappearing ice floes, a stylish cat and an impoverished artist learn to create beautiful artworks together, a perfect gold heist goes horribly awry and the Mona Lisa finds herself in entirely new surroundings. And then there are a couple of very unusual chameleons: one trying to impress a potential mate, and the other? Well, let’s just say it’s a documentary that David Attenborough clearly had no involvement in ... Most of these films are dialogue-free, proving words aren’t always necessary when telling exquisite stories. However, one story is in French with English subtitles and another has a French spoken in the background (subtitles not required). Suited to audiences aged eight and older, please be aware that they do include some cartoon violence, images of a decomposing rat and some very messy eating!
