About the film: Marco, 12, is obsessed with his iPad and hardly leaves the house. But when his grandmother dies and his grandfather moves in, Marco's life is turned upside-down and he's forced...to go play outside. "Nonno" (Grandpa) introduces him to bocce ball and to the neighborhood crew of old Italian men who play daily at the local court. With sport, laughter and love, Marco finds connection to other people and rounds up a team of neighborhood kids to take on Marco's grandfather and his pals.

About the film: Mulan, a Chinese legend from over 1700 years ago, has been favoured twice by Disney (animated film in 1998, life-action film in 2020). Often respected as the world’s earliest call for gender-liberation and feminism, Mulan transcended her historic and geographic boundaries to become a popular figure among modern-day audience all over the world. But how much do we really know about the actual story, along with its historical and contemporary implications? There are so much more to contextualize beyond the scenes, on the topics of equality, gender, tradition, and how an ancient legend being repeatedly packaged and sold by one of the biggest media conglomerates.
