Watch five short films with your children ages three to eight. Topics range from wildlife to seasons to magical cranes. Featured films include "The Wishing Cranes" (2017, 3 min), "Autumn" (2016, 3 min), "The Short Story of a Fox and a Mouse" (2016, 6 min), and "U at the Zoo: Okapi" (2011, 2 min).
Families and children will enjoy lively facilitated post-film discussion with a children’s educator, as well as a book reading of “African Unicorn” (another name for the endangered Okapi), interactive activities, and healthy snacks. Families will leave wanting to continue discussion on the topics of these short but rich films.
