Football was invented in prehistoric times, when the Earth collided with an asteroid: a shard the size of a ball was too hot to hold it in one's hands. But the rules of the game were lost even by its creators, and it was only in the beginning of the Bronze Age, when a tribe of savages were threatened with their own extinction, that the time was right to remember ancient traditions. They have to prove their right to existence on the football pitch, where knights of the Bronze Age lie in wait.

The legendary founder of Aardman Animations and the British Walt Disney of claymation, Nick Park, shot a new film unrelated to any of his previous series, be it Wallace and Gromit or Shaun the Sheep. There couldn't be a better time (or way) to talk about football than during the year of the World Cup.

After the screening and a treat from Cafe Pion, a teacher from the TsEKh Contemporary Dance School will work with the children.

On 8 April, as part of the "At the Cinema, At Last" festival, we will screen Nick Park's classic "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" (2005), one of the British studio's most successful films and recipient of an Oscar for best animated film.
