Curated by Northwest Film Forum

The world is full of magic in the most surprising places. Discover a seashell that can shrink buildings and pick up boats, a ring that tells you the truth about anything you see, a comb that will make your hair grow like wild vines, and a toy car who remembers its favorite owner.

Note for parents: A small water pistol is shown in Moritz and a very brief glimpse of a bare bottom appears in Kalle Kran.
