During the March break this year, Ciné-Cinema will be presenting two films, Kubo and the Two Strings and La vache.

Kubo and the two strings is an animated film for children 10 years old and over.

Thanks to the financial support of the Huntingdon Rotary Club, Ciné-Cinema is pleased to present this film free of charge for our youth in the region. It will be screened at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 6 in English and again at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8 in French.
Kubo is a young Japanese boy who manages to scrape a living as a story-teller. His tranquil life will be turned upside down when, in error, he calls on a demon from the past who is going to reap his wrath on the village to discharge an ancient grudge. In trying to escape, Kubo finds himself in an exhilarating saga in order to save his family and discover the secret of his father’s fall, the greatest samurai the world has ever known. With the help of his Shamisen – a magic musical instrument – he will face all kinds of gods and monsters in his quest to unravel the mystery of his heritage, return to his family and fulfil his heroic destiny.
This poetic and visually enticing film won the prize for the best-animated film at the Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2017 and has been nominated for several others. The film, 1 hour and 43 minutes in length, is recommended for children 10 years old and over since certain scenes may be scary.

La vache, a film for all.

This film will be presented in its original French version on Friday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m. and again on Sunday, March 12 at 2 p.m. Admission is $7. for adults and $3. for children.

Fatah, an Algerian peasant, has eyes only for his cow, Jacqueline, and he dreams of taking her to Paris to the Agricultural Salon. When he receives the precious invitation before the entire astonished village, he, who has never left his country home, takes a boat to Marseille, crosses all of France on foot to arrive at Porte de Versailles. The journey for Fatah and Jacqueline has many surprise encounters as they experience a human adventure full of touching and funny moments. An unexpected voyage, full of tenderness in today’s France.  A story of good humour and undeniable human warmth.

Ciné-Cinema holds its activities at the Little Green Library at 4 Lorne Street in Huntingdon.
