IndieJunior will present about 50 films that combine fun with the educational character of cinema, in a program composed of an international competition of recently produced feature films and short films.
Highlight for the films “Alice Júnior”, Gil Baroni (Brazil), about a transgender youtuber, “Fritzi – a revolutionary tale”, by Ralf Kukula and Matthias Bruhn, a German animation that recounts the story of the fall of the Berlin wall through the eyes of a child, and “Bom dia Mundo!”, another French animation by Anne-Lise Koehler and Éric Serre, on ecology and environment.
In addition to the films, there will also be a special session at Maus Hábitos and a debate around urgent environmental issues (‘Não Há Planeta B’), which will take place on May 19, at 6:00 pm, in the Salão Nobre da Ritoria from the University of Porto, with the participation of elements responsible for organizing the recent Student Climate Strike, Extincion Rebelion and Zero Waste Portugal.
IndieJunior stresses that the online platform created by the festival will allow the organization of cinema sessions in schools and that interested teachers can also register through indiejunior.com/escolasporto.
