Frugal Forest. Sea Acres Rainforest Centre

frugal-forest-main

“Imagine a twilit space. You walk along a path, your footfalls softened by leaf litter. Overhead trees, palms, and vines vanish into darkness, and around you grasses, ferns and fungi flourish. The space is filled with the sounds of creatures welcoming the dawn. But as you listen and look, you notice faces in the leaves, a hint of barcode in the bark. The soundscape slides into sounds that you almost recognize from city streets, and out again. Everything you see and hear is made entirely from salvaged materials.”

Fresh from a season at the Sydney Opera House, the Hastings’ own Frugal Forest is coming home to the Sea Acres Rainforest Centre. The exhibition will be open every day from 9 am to 4:30 pm, for a gold coin donation, until January 31.

January 13. My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea. 2.30pm. Bellingen Hall

My Entire High School- FINALWhat outcast high schooler hasn’t daydreamed for a little disaster to shake things up? This lo-fi animation from graphic novelist Dash Shaw is throwing the cool kids to the sharks and painting its own pastel and ink picture of growing up.

When school newspaper writers Dash and Assaf are torn apart by the latter’s budding romance with their editor, Verti, the geeky Dash is left ostracized and digging around for his next scoop. What he finds is that Tides High School is perilously close to crumbling into the ocean. Which is harder, surviving homework and cliques, or sharks and jellyfish? My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea is a bizarre and inventive animation unlike anything you’d ever see from Disney, but despite the body count, it’s a sweet and slyly poignant trip through all the good and bad of getting through school.

“ By far the most original animated movie of the year, or any other in recent memory .”– IndieWire

Recommended for ages 12+. Length 75 minutes

January 19. Phantom Boy. 1.30pm Bellingen Hall

Phantom-Boy---FINALYoung patient and bedridden Leo, desperate to escape the boredom of his hospital room, discovers he has a secret power- to become ‘Phantom Boy’ with the ability to leave his body at will to explore with complete freedom. Leo immediately puts his powers to use, volunteering his gift to an injured policeman in the hospital. A fearless journalist joins their detective team on the search a supervillain who is holding New York City to ransom.

Directors Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol (A Cat In Paris) team up again, bringing their uniquely French voices to the classic tale of cops and robbers, all animated in a delightfully hand-drawn, Picasso inspired style. Filled with nods to Batman, Dick Tracey, Manhattan and The Sopranos, and brought to life by a voice cast including Vincent D’Onofrio, Audrey Tatou and Fred Armisen.

“ This film packs an emotional wallop, but it also takes care of its noir crime- fighting business with considerable panache.”– Epoch Times

January 19. April and the Extraordinary World, 12.30pm Jetty Memorial Theatre.

April and the Extraordinary World _FINALIt’s not every day you can take the family to see a steampunk, alternative history, French science-fiction animation film and with a talking cat!

April and the Extraordinary World is the type of other-worldly family film that kids will adore for its delightful characters, humour and comic-book thrills and grown-ups will love for, well, for all the same reasons and more. Directed by Christian Desmares and Franck Ekinci, adapting a graphic novel from the revered artists Jacques Tardi, the film follows female scientist, April as she embarks on a mission through a fantastical 1941 Paris (with two Eiffel towers!) to find out why fellow scientists are disappearing, including her parents.

This enchanting, vintage adventure is an exhilarating tale with intelligence and heart enough to peak the most curious and creative of young minds.
