Top of page

Three short films without dialogue to stimulate thinking in children 5 to 12 years old. Night/La Nuit: What is it about the night that stirs the imagination toward enchantment and mystery? A girl views the city at night from her balcony, wondering about the sights and sounds of her familiar world after dark. Several viewings will allow students to look again and experience the magic of night from different perspectives (9 min. 8 sec.). Topsy-Turvy/Rêve magie: In a young boy's dream world anything can happen--even magic. What magic is there in the child's world of fantasy? What magic is there in everyday things such as electricity and magnetism? Students of intermediate grades will want to discuss the scientific principles behind the impossible events and try their own "magic tricks" while younger children can make hypotheses about why some events cannot really happen (9 min. 5 sec.). Journey of the Blob/Voyage sans fin: A boy makes a decision about how to dispose of a green glob he has concocted. What will happen if he dumps it into a stream? Where does water come from and where does it go? This film illustrates the water cycle and raises many questions about environmental responsibility and the consequences of our decisions (9 min. 52 sec.).
