Fiddlesticks/Quatsch und die Nasenbärbande, Screening: 2pm, Ages 5+

Bollersdorf is an average town. But for the children, being average is no fun and when their grandparents are packed off to retirement homes for not being average enough, the children plot to get them out, with the help of their pet coati. A hilarious caper of madcap inventions follows, making sure that Bollersdorf will never be average again. (Germany ● 2014 ● English subtitles ● Comedy/Family ● Director: Veit Helmer)
