Last month the French-Cypriot school in Nicosia began a series of film screenings called Cinema Sundays in collaboration with Cablenet featuring French family films, which continues this weekend.
This time around, things are switching up a little by relocating from Pantheon Cinema to the brand-new Rio Premier cinema at the Nicosia Mall on Sunday. So, if you hadn’t had the chance to visit the new mall or want to check out its new cinema theatre, this is your opportunity to do so, all while enjoying some family time.
Sticking to the children’s animated films theme, Approved For Adoption is set to be screened, which follows young boy Jung who also narrates the film. Born in Seoul, South Korea, he is adopted by a Belgian family and moves to Belgium as part of an adoption programme after the Korean war of 1971.
The film portrays the important moments of his childhood and adolescence through actual documentary shots, archive images and reconstructed animation scenes all based on the past life of Jung.
It is a film full of emotions, humour and poetry, suitable for children and grown-ups. Approved For Adoption won the People’s Award at the international Festival of Annecy in 2012.
