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.
A hilarious adventure starring… the entire animal kindsom!
Zootopia takes us on a tour of a whimsical world full of delightful characters and ingenious cult movie references. The modern metropolis of Zootopia is like no other city. It is a melting pot where animals of every kind, from massive elephants to miniscule rodents, coexist. The city, however, is divided into social classes based on prejudice. When the optimistic police officer July Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first rabbit officer among large and tough animals is no easy thing. Determined to prove her worth, she jumps at the opportunity to solve a case, even if that means partnering with a sly, chatterbox fox called Nick Wilde. They have less than 48 hours to find a missing mammal.
