Short fiction documentaries / art program for kids

In May, the new short “documentaries” series entitled Look, Listen, Think & Imagine by Vlefaro live cinema, continues. Reality and fiction come together to give creative answers to everyday questions, inspired by true questions asked by children. 

The purpose of these videos, in addition to inspiring, entertaining and providing learning opportunities for children, is to familiarize them with the process of creative thinking, connotations, dreams and, by extension, art and poetry. Children are invited to create their own works of art, often without being shown how, and following therefore, a reverse approach to the one usually adopted by creative workshops. 

Paintings, photographs, animated images and original melodies are enlisted to set in motion an unusual animated encyclopaedia, which uses information as the launchpad to create something new. Each time, children are presented with a description of the theme, a piece of research, real and fictional data, famous works of art and connotations that arise from the particular episode’s concept. Then, they are free to choose the media they wish to use in order to create their own original artworks. 

In May we decode symbols that often appear in fairy tales and construct the fantastic memoirs of our favorite heroes.

Vlefaro live cinema presents new episodes, analyzing well-known fairytale characters, as well as the concepts they represent, in order to find out their characteristics and adventures through images and speech.
What makes Alice bold and strange? What is her secret to communicate with animals? Or do animals choose to speak to her in a human voice? Why are there so many fairy tales about princes and what would a prince be like nowadays?

The aim of the videos is for children to discover the multidimensional world of fairy tales, so that they can build their own heroes on ready-made bases.

Episode 10 | Animals that transform, animals that help

Animals are very often the lead characters in fairy tales. They are usually best friends and helpers of people, that have a mission or a secret to share. They symbolize friendship, affection, sincere love but also cunning, greed, or savagery. Which animal would you choose to be?

Episode 11 | The wheat, the flour and the bread

Wheat digs into fairy tales in order to talk about fertile land, the joy of patience or the reward of hard work. Other times we find it as flour, and other times as bread. But it is always food, which gives strength if one molds it and bakes it properly.
