Northwest Film Forum

Home is the center of every kid’s universe, and family is the gravity that keeps their feet on the ground. This eye-popping program begins with a music-drenched animation about animal friends and ends with a live action film from Mexico about a nine-year-old girl who enlists people in her neighborhood in a silly scheme to make her brother laugh.

This program includes films from China, Colombia, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Korea, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, and the US.
