Kids Are Kids The Whole World Over

January 24, 2008

"She's the German J.K. Rowling," Goethe-Institut Los Angeles media technician Stefan Kloo says of bestselling children's author Cornelia Funke (pictured below at the Goethe-Institut). "The kids go bonkers about her." On Sunday, the Institut's monthly Kinder Matinee features a screening of "The Thief Lord," a 2006 German film adaptation of Funke's fantasy novel about two orphans on the run from a beautiful and mysterious carousel with dangerous powers. In addition to the movie, youngsters can draw, play and enjoy the other materials in the multimedia collection. Mandated by the German Foreign Ministry to promote contemporary German culture in the U.S., the Institut's Media Lounge helps connect young German language learners and their families to one another and to Los Angeles at large. 10 a.m. Sun. Miracle Mile. $5 suggested donation per family. (323) 525-3388; www.goethe .de/ins/us/los/ wis/bib/enindex .htm
