Youth Matinee

Following Saturday's screening, we encourage youth interested in drawing, creating, or imagining to stay for a special interactive presentation, "From Idea to Life," with Abdul Ndadi.


Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three, and he's heading on an epic adventure across the seasons. Will he get back to his family in time for his favorite holiday?

What if one thing could transform your entire world? How far would you go to reach your dreams? A young township girl attending a prestigious English school in the North, gets tired of being late all the time and thus being excluded. So she sets out to enter a singing competition where she could possibly win a car and solve all her problems. But in order to even have a chance at winning with her favorite Pop-star's song, she needs one key that moves!


Rooted in West African myth, Orisha's Journey is about a little girl and the power of imagination. Orisha, who doesn't believe in fables finds herself in one. After meeting a lost flower spirit, she must journey though the world of spirits and the depths of her imagination to return the lost flower to the 'Walking Forest!'


After our youth films, engage with Abdul Ndadi in an interactive presentation.  Ndadi will share his journey through art to storyboarding editor. Participants will draw characters or object and learn to take drawings to movement and action.

Youth films are appropriate for ALL ages. There will be take home crafts for participants; Ndadi will focus on youth 9 and older for the second half of the workshop.  His workshop is the perfect opportunity for those interested in art, drawing, and visual culture.
