A boy looks at his reflection in a clockface
  • Hugo

    Film Program, Years 5 & 6

    Martin Scorsese, 126 mins, USA, 2011

    Adapted from Brian Selznick's illustrated novel, Hugo brings together the stories of orphaned boy, Hugo Cabret, and the extraordinary pioneer of early cinema, Georges Méliès.

    This is a film about secrets, loss and discovery. The discussion and resources accompanying the film screening focus on technology, imagination and the history of cinema.

    And as I've gotten older, I've had more of a tendency to look for people who live by kindness, tolerance, compassion, a gentler way of looking at things.

    - Martin Scorsese

    Admission: $10 per student (min 30 students, max 160 students)
