Way of Giants

Caminho dos Gigantes

No dialogue.

In her search for purpose, six-year-old Oquirá confronts the cycle of life and the concept of destiny. As she embarks in the task of building a wind instrument, the role of music gains increasing importance in the story. A master of ancient Andean music, Tito la Rosa composed and recorded the score using handmade Inca and Andean instruments — most of which La Rosa and his son made following Andean tradition.

The Teeny-Weeny Fox

Le Renard Minuscule

No dialogue.

In the middle of a luscious garden, a teeny-weeny fox meets a mischievous little girl with a watering can and some magic seeds. Whatever she waters, it sprouts, grows, and thrives. By coincidence, they realise they can grow objects too. The clever little devils think up all sorts of things to do.

The Owl And The Lemming

In the tradition of Inuit oral storytelling, a young owl is ready to eat the lemming it found for dinner, but will the clever lemming have the last laugh? Viewers may be familiar with the classic Co Hoedeman adaptation of the story; in this updated version, the audience is invited to take on the lemming’s perspective.
