Kosmokids 2020: The World of Insects

Kosmorama has the pleasure of inviting you to the Kosmokids family weekend March 7th – 8th during Kosmorama 2020! This year, we’ll get to know the fascinating world of insects.

Did you know that an ant can lift over fifty times its own weight? And that the fly is the sister of the prawn? Kosmokids love insects because together we can make the earth a better place to be! 

Kosmokids is the festival’s regular family concept which takes place during the festival weekend. On Saturday, Prinsen Cinema Center opens at 10 am. We offer several fun activities and opportunities to see beloved movie classics, as well as a brand new release! 

Will serve honey cakes and fruit nectar, before the children can take part in exciting activities. 

The films we’ll screen this year are A Bug’s Life and Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants. With A Bug’s Life, we offer a re-encounter with a popular Pixar classic suitable for children and adults alike. Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants is a gorgeous, French-speaking, animated film suitable for the youngest children. The films will be shown both Saturday and Sunday. We are also hosting the premiere on the brand new animated film Latte and the Magic Waterstone!

Munti Magic will transform parts of the Cinema foyer into a magical forest. Here you can play with fireflies, butterflies and other mysterious insects. This installation will last throughout the festival, and both adults and children are welcome to take a break here in between exciting movie experiences. Saturday morning there’ll also be an opportunity to create your own weird, cute or funny insects at the insect workshop with the Trondheim Art Museum (Trondheim Kunstmuseum).


A Bug’s Life (1998)

A Bug’s Life is the second computer-animated film by Disney Pixar. It introduces us to a hard-working ant colony which is forced every year to harvest food for an angry mob of grasshoppers. One day, a somewhat clumsy but inventive ant named Flik knocks all the food over by accident so that it falls into the river and disappears in the stream. Although none of the other ants in the colony believes he can succeed, Flik leaves Ant Island to find someone who can help the poor ants defeat the tyrannic grasshoppers. Flik hires what he believes to be a group of warrior insects, which is really a circus troop. Will Flik and his new friends manage to save the ant colony from the evil grasshoppers before it’s too late?

A Bug’s Life is directed by John Lasseter, a pioneer within computer animation. Lasseter has been awarded an Oscar twice – once for Toy Story (1995), the first feature-length computer-animated film ever made.

Kosmorama has the pleasure of inviting you to the Kosmokids family weekend during Kosmorama 2020. This time we will get to know insects and their fascinating world.

Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants (2006)

Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants is a stunning animation film for younger children completely without dialogue. The cast of characters, which mainly consists of ants, communicate through the sounds of trumpets and flutes, but we always understand what they mean. A mix of real nature photography and animation creates an intriguing and beautiful visual expression which will excite both children and grown-ups.

The leftovers from an abandoned picnic in a peaceful clearing in the forest become the object of desire for two rivalling ant tribes, and the conflict is on. A young ladybug befriends an ant from the black ant tribe, and together they decide to guard over a box of delicious sugar cubes. Also interested in the sugar cubes are the ants from the rivalling red ant tribe. The two new friends must be very brave and strong to protect the sugar cubes and the rest of the black ant tribe against the red ant tribe, which is led by the terrifying boss ant Butor.
