Nanoplex Presents: 'be A Bunny!' Nanoplex Easter Fundraiser Including Haiti Screenings & The Singing Ringing Tree
Sun 4 April 2010 // 14:00
(Sun 4th / 2-5pm / £3 children, adults £4, suitable for all)
The Cube is taking a mobile cinema to children in Haiti. We have two Cube volunteers currently there, screening and making films with Haitian kids. Today is a fund raising event.
Following on from the enormous success of February’s Nanoplex, in which children in Bristol made film postcards to take to kids in Haiti, today we will be screening films Haitian kids have made for the Cube, along with the magical, cult children's classic, The Singing Ringing Tree. We will also show Encounter's short films, while children here can make new films for kids in Haiti.
There’s cakes, tea, coffee, scribbling, even an Easter egg raffle, perhaps a hunt, and all sorts of fun. Come as a bunny!
All for the price of £3/£4 a head, this is a delicious, great Easter afternoon. Tickets on the door.
2.00 pm draw film postcards, make films
2.30 pm watch Haiti kids films
3.00 pm The Singing Ringing Tree
4.15 pm short films, making films, Easter egg hunt
The Singing Ringing Tree
(Francesco Stefani / Germany / 1957 / 74 minutes / Cert U)
A prince, a princess, a quest, a strange land behind a waterfall, a huge goldfish, a tree that trills. The East German fantasy film that entranced and haunted a generation of British kids when it was shown on TV. See it on the big screen, its colour palette of turquoises and pinks beautifully restored.
