Loaded with imagination, music, laughs and emotions, July's film screenings for children on the Great Lawn bring us close to nature and the creatures that form part of its rich tapestry. From the Ice Age to the jungle and from learning how to live together to life lessons in dealing with the threats lurking in the forest, these films invite young and old to a journey through the animal kingdom.
Program curated by Elias Frangoulis
A young deer named Bambi grows up in the forest, alongside his friends, a friendly rabbit called Thumper and Flower, a skunk that doesn't really smell as great, as its name suggests. Based on the eponymous book by Austrian author Felix Salten, the fifth film in the Disney Animated Canon is one of the greatest examples of the genre and went on to become a perennial favorite of audiences around the world. Paradoxically, the film was a commercial flop when it first came out; released during the Second World War, it failed to reach many European countries. Nominated for three Academy Awards (for Best Music Score, Best Original Song and Best Sound Recording), it is inducted into the U.S. National Film Registry.
Directed by David Hand
The film is dubbed in Greek
