The Athens International Children’s Film Festival chose a single key word to resound across this season’s Park Your Cinema Kids — Music!
We invite young viewers and their families to sing, dance and move to the beat of joy, adventure and friendship, with a series of all-time favorite films that exalt music in every possible way. From Sing, with the talented animal-singers who follow their dream, to the Lion King remake featuring the much loved “Hakuna Matata,” this year’s range of options offers a fun getaway from the day-to-day, as well as valuable takeaways for all ages, conveyed through melodious stories that promote free expression, understanding and perseverance to achieve any goal.
For who’s to say that the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center isn’t also a dance floor?
Despite the mysterious family-wide ban on music, spanning several generations, Miguel is dreaming of becoming a famous musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. After a series of unusual events, and in his craving to prove his talent, Miguel will find himself in the dazzling, fascinating and colorful Land of the Dead. Accompanied by the charming charlatan who goes by the name Héctor, Miguel will experience an incredible journey that will reveal to him the hidden history of his family. A moving tale and marvelous music in a Pixar story about memory, family and songs. The film earned two Academy Awards, for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (“Remember Me”).
