Clear away those winter blues away with Film and FIKA. Harbourfront Centre Theatre will have a matinee showing of the family-friendly film ALONE IN SPACE and an evening showing of Christoffer Boe’s drama, A TASTE OF HUNGER. Be sure to also partake in FIKA: the art of the Swedish coffee break. It will be a chance to slow down, connect with others and enjoy an array of Nordic teas, coffees and delicious treats.
ALONE IN SPACE
In a not-too-distant future, the giant spacecraft Svea travels with only two passengers: 12-year-old Gladys and her little brother Keaton. The children have fled from a broken Earth and are heading towards the planet Vial, but they never seem to arrive. They spend their days exploring the giant ship; the only one they can talk to is the Japanese A.I. Otosan. Everything changes when something unknown crashes into Svea when they realize they’re no longer alone in space.
ALONE IN SPACE is an epic, adventurous, warm and entertaining space adventure for the whole family, where two siblings challenge their fate accompanied by a friendly alien.
