G5A Cinema House | Kid's Special

G5A Cinema House | Kid’s Special

Come home to G5A warehouse this weekend and explore films of lives beyond us.Film 01: Spirit of the ForestA little girl stumbles into a sacred grove near her village in south India. She disturbs the spirit of the forest, who takes her on an adventure to illuminate the origins of this ancient swamp: from Gondwanaland, through the times of her ancestors, up to the present day. This film attempts to make plants more than just background scenery, with all flora and fauna accurate to the local habitat. It is inspired by indigenous practices of protecting relict forests through folklore grounded in scientific principle.

Film 02: Delhi Safari

A group of animals plan a trip to Delhi in order to ask the parliament why the forest they live in is on the verge of destruction.

A leopard cub, his mother, a monkey, a bear, and a parrot undertake a journey when the forest they live in is on the verge of destruction: a man is on the run to destroy the forest in order to erect a balcony. The five animals decide to go to Delhi and ask the parliament some very simple yet pertinent questions: Why has man become the most dangerous animal? Doesn’t man understand that if the forests and the animals don’t exist, man will cease to exist?

Screenings followed by a conversation with renowned environmentalist Bittu Sahgal and filmmaker Nikkhil Advani. Kids will also be invited for a short tree walk followed by a collage-making activity and some Nature games. This workshop is facilitated by naturalists and educators from Vanvasam! Don’t forget to bring a cap, water bottle, notebook and comfortable shoes.
