GULP! GOAL! CIAK! - Activities for School

9th February> 20th May 2019
The multimedia exhibition 'Cinema and Comics' highlights points in common and differences of movie and cartoon languages throughout the hundred years of their history, to understand  how comic strip language is somewhat objectified in film-making, although it exists also thanks to reader participation. The exhibition includes many movie clips directly linked to cartoon strips, but also examples of the opposite – where a movie becomes a cartoon. You can enjoy original tables, sets, the cels from animated cartoons, photographs and  props. Interactive stations will show other possibilities of interaction between the two languages finishing with an experiment where some film sequences are turned into cartoon strips, and sound is a balloon and an onomatopoeia. Have a good read and enjoy the show!
