Manaiakalani Film Festival

Here is our movie for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. It is titled

"Watercress Tuna and the Children of Point England School."

We got the idea for our movie from a story we read by Patricia Grace called "Watercress Tuna and the Children of Champion Street". It is about an eel who goes to different children's houses and gives them something that relates to their culture that makes them want to dance.
Check out Room 13 and Room 14's version.

We chose this story to make our movie about because at Pt England School this year our Makerspace teacher has been looking after a container of eels.

Kia ora Rm 15 well done on making an amazing movie? I think that the eel took off out of the eel tank because he didn't want those kids to forget what they were missing. I was really inspired by what use had just created as in making a beautiful movie, one day you will all make your own creative movie's for other people to watch and be inspired of.
