Rupavahini presents kids movies for vacation

For the school vacation, Rupavahini presents a series of famous foreign children’s movies including French, German and English movies. 'Les Chorester' (The Chorus), a 2004 French drama film will be shown at 1.30 pm on Tuesday at 11.

Directed by Christophe Barratier it is a remake of the 1945 film 'A Cage of Nightingales' (La Cage aux Rossignols), which was adapted by Noël-Noël and René Wheeler from a story by Wheeler and Georges Chaperot. The film explores the pain of a child's separation from his parents and the transcendence of music as the greatest form of expression. German film 'Email and Detective' (Emil und die Detektive) will be shown on Wednesday April 16 at 1 pm.

When 11-year-old Emil travels to Berlin his money is stolen. While following the thief, Emil runs into Pony, the head of a gang who offers to help. One of the gang members takes his place at the local pastor's house, where he is meant to be staying. When Pony falls into the hands of the thief, a daring adventure ensues.

'Annaluise and Anton', another German film will be shown on Thursday April 16 at 1 pm. Directed, written by Caroline Link, based on the book by Erich Kaestner. Annaluise "Puenktchen" Pogge (Elea Geissler) and her pal Anton Gast (Max Felder) are typical Munich 10-year-olds, fast friends who cheerfully help each other out. But Puenktchen's parents, Bettina (Juliane Koehler) and Richard (August Zirner), are rich doctors, whereas Anton's sickly mother, Elli (Meret Becker), works only intermittently at the local cafe.

Needing money for his mom's therapeutic trip to the ocean, Anton impulsively steals a gold cigarette lighter from the Pogge household and triggers a showdown between the two mothers, causing both Puenktchen and Richard to doubt Bettina's commitment to her daughter.

'Volcano' is a 1997 disaster action film starring Tommy Lee Jones, Anne Heche, and Don Cheadle. Tommy Lee Jones stars as Mike Roark, a divorced Los Angeles emergency official who takes charge when a volcano grows out of the La Brea Tar Pits. The lava destroys one subway train in the Red Line, kills the Metro chairman by melting him, burns cars, firemen, homes, and fire trucks, and burns down the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

In spite of placing himself and his teenage daughter in danger, Mike decides to save the city by diverting the river of lava into the concrete channel of Ballona Creek, which allows the lava to flow safely into the Pacific Ocean, but there's a problem. Directed by Mick Jackson, this adventure thriller will be telecast Friday April 18 at 1 pm.
