Film Voyagers For children ages 3 to 7 years old and their caregivers.
Tired of the standard prince and princesses fare? Do you want your child to have the thrill of experiencing a new culture but without boarding a plane?
Film Voyagers is a program of films for younger children and their caregivers. We features a selection of films from around the world --most animation -- geared toward a young audience. Past programs have included films from Nigeria, Germany, France, Congo, and Latvia among others. This autumn the series will include films from Denmark, Congo and Korea!!! Subtitles will be read aloud by trained actors
Due to popular response Film Voyagers will now run every Sunday, with each film program running two consecutive Sundays.
Begins at 2pm. Each Film Voyagers showing will be approx 45-90 min long.
Geared toward children ages 3-7, but please check each film description for advisory information!
Priority admission for Maysles Cinema Family Members. $8 suggested donation
Tigers and Tattoos Karla von Bengston, 2010, Denmark, approx 43 min. Tigers and Tattoos is the story of a little girl, Maj, who lives with her Uncle Sonny, a tattoo artist. After Maj decides to try her hand at tattooing a sleeping customer, the two go on the run before he wakes up to his new tattoo! A charming story about loss, and understanding. In Danish with English subtitles. Most suitable for ages five and up. Some moments that may be a bit scary for young children as Maj and her uncle are pursued by a man who seems quite menacing at first, but looks can be deceiving!
Made possible by the generous support of the Cultural Services of the Danish Consulate General.
