To celebrate our special exhibition "Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami" we're indulging in the popular animated film "Kubo and the Two Strings."

Event Details

August 24, 11am-1:30pm
Free with Museum admission!

From the studio behind "Coraline," "Kubo and the Two Strings" is a 2016 film about a young origami storyteller, Kubo, who wants to know more about his father, a fallen samurai who died protecting Kubo’s mother from her own father. On a journey filled with magic, conflict, and loss, Kubo must complete the ultimate quest to defeat his mother’s tyrannical family and find the most powerful thing in all of Japan: his father’s invulnerable battle-suit.

Prior to the feature film is the premiere of Cranes, a short film by local teen filmmaker Alex Archipov, with a brief Q&A afterward. Set entirely in St. Pete, the film follows a young boy dealing with grief who finds hope through folding origami paper cranes.

Origami folding activities — samurai hats and paper cranes – will be included as part of the event. Films are suitable for ages 9 and above; activities are appropriate for ages 3 – 103.

This event is made possible by St Pete Clearwater Film Commission.
