THE HAITI KIDS KINO PROJECT
Extending the reach of its film program, the Cube Cinema and its children's wing, Nanoplex, have set up a mobile, social cinema for children affected by the Haiti earthquakes - The HAITI KIDS KINO PROJECT (HKKP).
In 2010, less than a month after the earthquake, two volunteers from Bristol's Cube Cinema went to Port Au Prince to project films on buildings and tents, while giving camera's to children to explore their own lives.
Sharing the experience of making and watching films, while offering temporary childcare, HKKP is a micro-humanitarian, goodwill project providing an opening for escape, community, emotion and social occasion and is funded through children's workshops in the UK, gigs (including an improvised comedy set from Jessica Hynes and Julia Davis), art jumbles (selling a hand crafted Morph from its creator), cakes and T-shirts designed by artist, Lady Lucy.
Over October and November 2011, three Cubesters are back in Haiti, continuing the cultural exchange between Haitian and Bristol children.
We have had extraordinary films curated by film makers and critics and by our outstanding children's programming team at Nanoplex. Take a look at our expanding, outstanding film program at our blog
