Our first family feature is the wonderfully affecting French-Swiss stop-motion masterpiece ‘ My Life as a Courgette ’. Described by one reviewer as a ‘little miracle of gentleness and tenderness’ the film is a moving exploration of the thoughts and feelings a young person might have when going through a difficult period. A charming French animation about a 9-year-old boy called Courgette who is sent to live in a children’s home following the death of his mother. The bright, colourful animation and affecting story make this a perceptive and uplifting film about friendship and child welfare. Please note that this film is PG rated for parental guidance and has some laugh out loud discussions of sex. We rate this film as engaging for children aged 10+. You can read a film review here .
Throughout the day you can get creative with the help of our partners ‘ Splattermake ’ and our artist volunteers. Their well equipped studio is a wonderful treasure trove where visitors can take part in making creatures using natural materials as well as ‘junk’ and bring them to life at our Animation Station.
Feeling creative? You can get stuck in with workshop facilitator Laura Kloss, who is returning this year with her amazing giant zoetrope. All throughout the day you can make your own spinning zoetrope and learn how to turn still images into moving pictures or have a go at making an animation using Laura’s life-sized version.
