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?
Despicable Me (2010)
In a rural neighborhood, there is a black house with a well-hidden shelter buried underneath, the residence of cunning Gru and his incredibly comical army of Minions. Gru, who is constantly plotting underhanded schemes, is currently working on a new grand plan: to steal the moon! In order to implement his plans, he is forced to adopt three orphan girls who show him so much love and affection that threaten to bring down this impregnable castle of evil… The music is composed by Grammy-winning Pharrell Williams.
