ZFF for Kids15. September 2012
Do you remember your very first visit to the cinema? The dreams, aspirations and wonder that a film on the big screen triggered in you? The fantasy and the characters that took your breath away? For the first time in its programme, the ZFF screens two films for children aged 6 and over (certificate K/8).
In GATTU we follow a small Indian boy who tells a white lie or two in order to indulge in his kite-flying passion. The Czech feature film MODRY TYGR sees Johanka and Matyas rescue their home, a paradisiacal botanical garden in the middle of the city, with the help of a mysterious blue tiger…
The aim of ZFF FOR CHILDREN is to offer youngsters an understanding of film culture beyond blockbusters, to enchant them and carry them off into foreign worlds. GATTU and MODRY TYGR will be shown in their original languages and simultaneously translated in the theatre (without headphones) into German. The fact that the films are screened in their original languages makes this a unique cultural experience for the children – they hear a foreign language, but also understand what is going on.
MODRY TYGR: Saturday 22.09., 13.30, corso 2
GATTU: Sunday 23.09., 13.30, corso 2
Tickets are available here for the special price of just CHF 9.-
