Sales LevelK Against his wishes, 12-year-old Niilas is sent away to spend the summer with his estranged mother in Swedish Lapland, among the indigenous reindeerherding Sami people. Meeting his other family is initially overwhelming, particularly when he is missing his father and home in Belgium. So he resolves to leave as soon as he can. His erratic behaviour results in some alarming near misses, but before long he begins to understand that for all the beauty on display in the natural world there are as many dangers that lurk within it. When a reindeer calf and its mother are separated, he embarks on an ill-advised ‘against the clock’ search, which ultimately forces him to rethink his own relationships with those around him. This is a beautifully shot family adventure about discovering your place in the world and dealing with new and sometimes dangerous situations. Suitable for ages 8+. Justin Johnson Subtitled in English. An actor will read out the subtitles via headphones for younger audiences. Beneath the human world is a mystical domain whose inhabitants, once they turn 16 years old must travel through a vortex to observe mankind for a week. During this time, they are barred from direct contact with the human beings. Young Chun takes the form of a dolphin, but on her journey unwittingly finds herself in a life and death situation involving a human boy that results in her making a huge decision. Chun’s world is an incredible magical realm whose residents include a one-eyed man carried in a carriage by cats, a giant two-headed snake and a rat matron who commands her obliging vermin gang. Big Fish & Begonia is an exceptional, visually breathtaking Chinese animated fantasy, as near to the best of Studio Ghibli as you’re likely to find anywhere. Think Spirited Away meets The Little Mermaid and you’re on the right track. Suitable for ages 8+. With English subtitles. Justin Johnson A pint-sized monk attempts to reach the home he had in a former life. Young Padma Angdu is said to be the latest incarnation of a religious teacher, known as a Rinpoche. Supported by Urgyan, an elderly monk, Padma embarks on his epic journey after being expelled from the monastery in Ladakh, Northern India (‘a Rinpoche without a monastery is like an orphan’). They plan to walk to Kham in Tibet, Padma’s home in his previous life. Becoming Who I Was is a beautifully made documentary, a labour of love depicting a punishing journey, often in hazardous conditions, and portraying a fascinating bond between man and boy. Both subjects display a resilient determination in accepting their place in the world and enduring this unique and challenging journey – spiritually as well as geographically. Suitable for ages 8+. With English subtitles. Justin Johnson Subtitled in English. An actor will read out the subtitles via headphones for younger audiences. CLOUDBOY BIG FISH & BEGONIA DA YU HAI TANG DOC
