Kid Flicks Two

  • Thursday August 04, 2022 1:00 PM

With shorts for ages 7+, Kid Flicks Two audiences are ready for plenty of fun, plus deeper themes and multilingual films with English subtitles. Stop motion equals nonstop action in Wild Lea, as a feral Colombian cat goes from lonely to loved, but can she learn to settle down with her new makeshift family? And if kooky tales are what you’re craving, you’ll flip your lid over the hilariously absurd split personalities of Matilda and the Spare Head. In the documentary Dear Future Me, 6th graders wrote letters to their future selves; fast-forward to 2020 when the now 12th graders re-read them with alternately surprising, bittersweet, and hilarious results. 
68 minutes, English and other languages with English subtitles
