ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival 2014 - the Programme
Fr 17.10. 10:00 Saal 1 / Entry: €3
Registration required at: email@example.com
Moderation: Leska Ruppert (Media Educator and Filmmaker, Berlin)
Narration: Vera Kreyer (Actress, Berlin)
What is a poetry film? How does it occur to someone to shoot a poem-film? What is a poem anyway? ZEBRINO shows poems as films in all colours and styles for children from 8–12 years, making the genre of poetry films accessible to them. We present prize-winning films from around the world: the young attendees encounter, amongst other things, a robot in the ballet, Swiss wordplay and ghosts, and find out all the things you can make out of buttons. At the end the children select their favourite film.
All films will be narrated in German.
We wish to thank the price donor Berlin on Bike.
