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.
Luis and the Aliens (2018):
What would you do if you suddenly came face-to-face with an alien – or, in fact, three of them? When your dad is convinced that aliens exist, life is neither easy, nor entirely normal! Despite his love for his dad, 12-year-old Luis doesn’t believe his claims, so he gets a pretty big surprise when three clumsy little aliens – Mog, Nag and Wabo – land right in front of him. In this laugh-out-loud animated family movie, a young boy tries to solve his problems with the help of his three wacky new friends… who just happen to be from another planet.
