Big Bang Parade
Two kids open a treasure chest that leads them to 6 different universes.
“Big Bang Parade” is an animation anthology film spanning six short films by six different directors. All shorts are embedded in a frame story and intertwined through playful connections. The frame story and each short display their own graphic style, showcasing the talent of each director.
When their mother doesn’t show up in time, two young children, Freya (5) and Lars (7), are left in school. Their kind but mysterious teacher Laila invites them to explore the forgotten treasures in the school attic. The attic is crammed with old and wondrous things.
Freya and Lars set out to discover them all. But there is one box they should not open. So, of course, that is exactly what they do, setting in motion 6 different adventures in 6 different universes.
“Big Bang Parade” is more than the sum of different short movies, it forms a unified whole that aims to offer the youngest among us a first cinema experience.
