Children aged 2 to 6 visit the cinema for the first time in Eye’s most beautiful, most intimate screening area. Today, three colourful animations about a tadpole, a tiger and a sweet rock. To begin with they all feel different and alone, but luckily everything works out.
Everyone is different, but sometimes it feels like it is only you who are different from the rest. The three calm, colourful animations are full of beautiful images with rich colours and in wonderful drawing styles. Three amazing pearls, three sweet, touching stories to watch together. Afterwards the children can play with light and shadow in little tents and on the large light box led by the Taartrovers.
Featuring the films:
Kuap (Nils Hedinger, CH 2018, 7')
A tadpole keeps missing out on becoming a frog. He is different from all the other tadpoles who do go on to be frogs. And so, every year, he is left behind alone. Luckily there is enough to discover in the water and spring returns every year. A small story about growing.
Luce en de rots (Britt Raes, BE 2022, 13')
A giant rock has rolled into town and is blocking all the doors. The rock proves to be alive. The story of two friends who ultimately face their mutual fear of the unknown together even though they seem to have nothing in common.
Tijgertje zonder strepen (Raúl 'Robin' Morales Reyes, FR 2018, 9')
The little tiger wants to play with the others so bad. But he isn’t striped and so he doesn’t really belong. Because other tigers do have stripes and the little tiger wants them too! So he goes on a journey to find stripes for on his coat. What will he find? The film has a soft, soothing style featuring beautiful colours, lovely music and wonderful lighting.
Eye’s finest and most intimate film theatre is a great place for children aged 2 to 6 to experience their first cinema visit. Every Sunday morning, Eye’s Cinemini opens especially for preschoolers and their (grand)parents, where children are treated to a film, followed by experiments with light and shadow in small play tents.
