Short Films 1 (2020)

Runtime: 70 min. | Recommended Ages: 5-10
On your mark, get set, jump into an Olympic-size dose of inventiveness in Short Films 1. A rather wild menagerie of animals competes for the gold in the series Athleticus. It’s a mad dash to wrap the season in The Last Day of Autumn, and the sky’s the limit for one boy’s journey through generations in the lofty and lovely The Kite.
