Window to Another World

A SHORT FILM PROGRAM

Thursday, April 14 | 10:00 AM & 11:45 AM | ROUNDHOUSE COMMUNITY CENTRE

Everyone has different life experiences and challenges. One person’s nightmare is another person’s dream. Things that seem everyday for some of us, are a struggle for others. The films in this program provide a glimpse into the worlds of an aspiring jazz singer, a father who learns an important lesson, and children in a remote village that become connected to the internet for the first time.

Themes: aspirations, confrontation, acceptance, new perspectives

Recommended for grades 4-7

This program screens as part of REEL FOCUS for elementary schools.

Dreaming of Peggy Lee

Often it is not so much what you achieve that’s commendable, but what you have to overcome in order to achieve it. This is the story of Belinda, a young girl who is struggling to accept who she is. Dim the lights and turn up your speakers and, with Belinda, let Peggy Lee transport you from the present day back to a golden age that will leave you inspired and enthralled.
