For the second IFI Family @ First Fortnight event, we have this programme of specially chosen international short films. The programme opens with The Kite (Pouštět draka), an exquisite Czech animation about a young boy and his special relationship with his grandad. Flying kites together, their friendship soars.
Both characters are made of layers, rich and dense for the young boy, thinner and lighter for grandad. When their relationship changes, the young boy holds as fast to his memories as the string of his kite.
This story and more, covering friendship, loss, difficult times and love, show an array of filmmaking talent, dedicated to leaving you and your young viewers feeling fine.
Recommended for ages 8+. Tickets cost €5.50 per person with a family ticket (2 adults + 2 children, 1 adult + 3 children) available for €16.50.
Screening as part of IFI & First Fortnight January 2020.
