Sat 1st & Sun 2nd May/ 1pm-5pm/ £1 + donations – SPIKE ISLAND OPEN DAY, BRISTOL Nanoplex presents a fundraising event for HKKP – The Children’s Film and Zoetrope Workshop. An afternoon of screenings, workshops and raffles. HKKP (Haiti Kids Kino Project) is a cultural exchange organised by The Cube Cinema’s childrens’ wing, Nanoplex. We are a mobile cinema projecting films to children in Haiti affected by the earthquakes while also providing workshops for Haitian and Bristol children to make their own films, which are swapped. This is a fundraising event to help keep our extraordinary project alive. Come along and meet the people behind the HKKP, see the Haitian children’s films, and make some fun stuff that will travel all the way to Haiti.

Haitian children affected by the earthquakes are experiencing untold damage and despair. Further anxiety grows through inaction, loneliness and boredom. HKKP contributes to quality of life through creating, sharing, forging friendships, connections and delighting in film.www.cubecinema.com/haiti
