Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax (USA, 2012)

Dir: Chris Renaud, Kyle Balda

86 min. | Hebrew dubbing (for the whole family)


In a town with no trees, and oxygen breathing from bottles, young Audrey dreams of returning the trees. Ted, in love with her, decides to fulfill this wish. That’s how he meets Lorax, who fights people who cut down the forests, and gets a chance to save the trees. “The Lorax” is based on an intimate and ecological work by Dr. Suss from the early 1970s, adapted to the spirit of this time: rhythmic plot, a touch of romance and the necessary ecological values.


Saturday events were made possible thanks to the generous support of NJD

Juan Perros



Dir: Rodrigo Imaz


Juan Perros is a documentary that portrays a simple, intimate and emotional portrait of a man who lives off waste he collects in the Mexican desert of Coahuila. Juan works tirelessly to survive in this arid and hostile environment, surrounded by his animals who he treats as family. Facing the constant power of nature and abandoned by society, Juan lives without drama, practicing a philosophy of life that is both humble and radical. With his words, Juan brings us closer to the essence of humanity and nature, the sublime and the brutal, set against a stunning desert landscape. Juan Perros transports us to the most intimate corners of the human condition. Despite everything he experienced, Juan has not loss his connection to nature; on the contrary, he has created a closer bond. The film Juan Perros won Best Documentary Short Film in 14FICM Morelia International Film Festival 2016 and was Internationally Premiered at the 56 Semaine de la Critique at Cannes Film Festival 2017.
