For Kids

Ciné-récré – Le chat du rabbin

Friday 9 March 14:00-16:00


March’s Ciné-récré film will be Le chat du rabbin (2010, dir. Joann Sfar & Antoine Delesvaux).

It is Algiers of the 1920s. Rabbi Sfar lives with his daughter Zlabya, a noisy parrot, and a playful, chatty cat who can’t help but lie. Its master would like to put some distance between the short-haired creature and his daughter, but the cat, crazy for Zlabya, is ready to do anything to stay close to her... even throw his own bar mitsvah! His path will cross that of an idealist Russian painter on a quest for an imaginary Jerusalem that Jews of every diaspora, skin colour, and ethnic background can call home.

Ciné-récré is our cinema strand for families to enjoy films in a relaxed children-friendly setting. Once a month, the Institut français d’Ecosse welcomes members and their children to attend this special screening in our médiathèque.
