Animation workshop for children
Director: Tomm Moore | Ireland, 2014 | 93 min. | Czech dabing
The tale of the last selkie. In the fabled land of the ancient Celts, a father lives with his daughter and son in a lonely lighthouse. The whole family is turned upside down when they discover the little girl is in fact the last selkie. Only she, by singing the song of the sea, can save the fairytale creatures turned to stone by Macha, the witch. After his highly acclaimed animated tale, The Secret of Kells, (nominated for an Oscar), Irish director, Tomm Moore, has returned with another enchanting feature length film. The gorgeously animated world of Celtic mythology and potent narrative about the power of love between mother and siblings has caused the young director to be compared to the masters of animated film and earned him his second Oscar nomination.
After the screening follows an animation workshop for adults (and children). Animation is as old as mankind itself. Even prehistoric people tried to paint the walls of their caves, capturing the movement od a mammoth by drawing it with eight feet. How does animation actually work? Can we make our own moving pictures at home? What would we need to do so? All these questions will be answered by experts from training and talent platform Free Cinema.
