* Considering the hard times our fellow citizens are going through due to the wildfires and the adverse atmospheric conditions in Athens, the screening is cancelled.
In this summer’s Park Your Cinema Kids, we invite our young film buffs and their families to discover incredible heroes in worlds that defy the imagination, to embrace tales based on compassion, and to build bridges that abolish differences and create a universe of love and trust.
In all of these stories, the heroes break away from the safety of their world (like Elsa and Anna, who seek the truth beyond Arendelle), choose their unexpected families (like Paddington, the lovable bear, in London), meet the friends with whom they’ll share unforgettable adventures (like the boy who forges an unbreakable bond with the Iron Giant), choose kindness over prejudice (like Shaun the Sheep, when he comes across an alien weed) and, of course, the adventure that makes all of this possible (like the revelation of the Giant Pear).
Every day, kids are faced with the reminder that the world around us is not black and white: it is multicolored, multifaceted, complex, like these wonderful films chosen by the Athens International Children’s Film Festival, which make up the most exciting summer cinema season at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.
Gnome Alone (2017):
When Chloe moves to her new home with her mother, she discovers that the ornamental gnomes in her garden are not what they seem. She must decide whether to carry on with her peaceful family and school life, or if she will join the war against the Troggs to save the planet from the hungry aliens. An incredible tale with plenty of humor and valuable messages on the importance of love, friendship, kindness and faith in your true self, and a catchy pop soundtrack by Becky G.
Director: Peter Lepeniotis
Dubbed in Greek.
