A MAGICAL TWO-PART FILM
Feel, hear & smell the world around you. Roll in the long grass, scrunch it beneath your fingers & take a long deep breath. Sunny Days encapsulates the magic of being free, of moving with abandon, and playing in the outdoors. A dance film for little explorers.
Every year, in the middle of winter, we go into the forest to find our tree. Our special tree. We bundle up so we’re warm, with hats, gloves, shoes and coats. We travel through the trees. Among the leaves and muddy puddles. Listening to the birds sing. And watching for animals.
Come into the woods and dance as we go on a gentle, sensory journey through the beautiful wintery forest to find a very special tree…Squelch through mud, sip hot chocolate, and play amongst the pines! Night Tree is a magical two-part film based on Eve Bunting’s book of the same name.
The films are available with or without audio description and creative captions.
A note about Creative Captions
The company has worked with The Johnny Luu to animate and illustrate the narration of the films for young D/deaf audiences or anyone who enjoys reading and singing along!
