Closed CaptioningThis Baby Pictures screening will feature subtitles for the Deaf and Hard of hearing.

Baby Pictures is our regular Friday morning film slot exclusively for carers with little ones aged twelve months and under. This week's screening presents a striking animation based on a collection of short stories by Haruki Murakami.

Pierre Földes' animated debut feature, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman, was produced using a new technique of “live animation” to striking visual, sound and storytelling results.

It follows the lives of multiple characters as they navigate post-Tsunami existence and the existential repercussions of urban life, including an unambitious bank employee, his disheartened wife, a delusional accountant, a lost cat and a giant talkative frog.

Baby Pictures 

Baby Pictures is open to carers and little ones of twelve months and under. As everyone in the cinema is a parent or carer, there’s no need to worry if it gets a little noisy. Everyone understands. Customers not accompanying a baby will be turned away.

The lights are turned up a little bit and the sound is a little softer to create a peaceful environment for you and the baby. It’s just for carers (Mum, Dad, Granny, Granda, whoever it is it looking after the tot) and babies. Up to two adults can come with a baby. Please note: we cannot allow babies over the age of 12 months to come to Baby Pictures.

Baby Pictures is supported by Film Hub NI.
