Nonverbal or in English. “So this bird’s got to fly…I’m tellin’ you, honey, this bird’s got to fly.” This program of animated shorts from around the world is sure to delight children of all ages. The Argentinian Llama Drama gets us off to a hilarious start. The French LaMi (in three segments) tells the story of the notes of the scale as they make friends. Miriam’s Kite from Estonia follows the adventures of Miriam and her duck. Nunavut, Canada brings us the Inuit The Orphan and the Polar Bear. The evolution of the New World is a bright, bouncy short short from the UK’s Oliver Sin, followed by a bright and bouncy 13 from Marin’s own Cynthia Pepper. The Australian The Gallant Captain is a boy on a mission. Through sand drawing, the classic hoop is transformed and erased and transformed again in Tess Martin's <i>Hula Hoop</i> A blend of 2D and 3D, Rabbit and Deer, our centerpiece from Hungary, will amaze and tickle you. Russia’s Tin Can bounces down some funny roads. The poignant, child-produced The Man Who Loved to Whistle is more of a heart-wrencher; it was produced in Croatia by our cultural partner, SAF Cakovec. All ages.
