FILM CONCERT: ALL-TIME CLASSICS

The Espai de Música Moderna (Modern Music Space) school, which has composed a soundtrack to these all-time classics especially for the Andorra Kids’ Film Festival, takes us on a musical journey packed with rhythm: blues, reggae, funk and much more!

Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp

Dir. Ub Iwerks / USA / 7′ 51’’

A colour version of the adventures of Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp.

It’s a jazzy take on the fairy tale, with a gorgeous score and great animation, one of the most distinctive cartoons ever produced. Ub Iwerks was the creator of Disney’s Mickey Mouse, and, as such, is one of the unsung heroes of animation.

Collars and Cuffs

Dir. George Jeske / USA/ 7′ 53’’

Stan, a laundry worker, has to reckon with the washing machines.

A 1923 silent comedy film starring Stan Laurel.

Just Neighbors

Dir. Harold Lloyd y Frank Terry / USA / 13’

Harold shares a backyard with a neighbour. Both try to make the garden pretty, but the road to ruin is paved with good intentions.

One of the oldest movies by Harold Lloyd. A fun and fast comedy.

Onésime, Clockmaker

Dir. Jean Durand / France / 7′ 17’’

Young Onésime learns that his uncle has left him a huge inheritance that he will only receive twenty years later. The young man can think of nothing better than to quicken the official clock of Paris to ensure time moves forward at great speed.

A perfect witness to the art of Jean Durand. His sudden madness makes him the most authentic precursor of the Marx brothers.

A Trip to the Moon

Dir. Georges Melies / France / 12’ 46’’

Six wise men, members of the Astronomers Club, embark on an expedition to the Moon. They travel in a space capsule launched by a giant cannon. Having reached the Moon safe and sound, they meet the planet’s inhabitants: the Selenites.

The film that gives rise to a popular genre: science fiction.
