Festival Sneak Preview!

We are hard at work, polishing our program for the 19th annual Freeze Frame International Festival for Kids of All Ages!

Here are a few of the films we have confirmed to whet your appetite!

FELIX

The Boza Boys - Sis Pretty

Family film, 97 min.
LOCATION: Cape Town, South Africa
DIRECTOR: Roberta Durrant
PRODUCTION COMPANY: Produced by Penguin Films for Sabido Productions

14-year-old Felix Xaba dreams of becoming a saxophonist like his late father, but his mother Lindiwe thinks jazz is the devil’s music.

When Felix leaves his township friends to take up a scholarship at an elitist private school, he defies his mother and turns to two aging members of his father’s old band to help him prepare for the school jazz concert.

Maiden Trip

14-year-old Laura Dekker sets out—camera in hand—on a two-year voyage in pursuit of her dream to be the youngest person ever to sail around the world alone. In the wake of a year-long battle with Dutch authorities that sparked a global storm of media scrutiny, Laura now finds herself far from land, family and unwanted attention, exploring the world in search of freedom, adventure, and distant dreams of her early youth at sea. Jillian Schlesinger’s debut feature amplifies Laura’s brave, defiant voice through a mix of Laura’s own video and voice recordings at sea and intimate vérité footage from locations including the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia, Australia, and South Africa.
