Maria Mac Dalland, Denmark, 2007

19 min.DK/Short fictionChildren's films, Animation

This film, for young children aged 2-5, is based on Thomas Winding's stories and paintings about the daily life of a Bear Family who live in a little house on a hill. It is about their search for a lost key when they are about to leave on a trip to the beach. About staying on the beach looking for tiny stones while Daddy and Mummy show each other how clever they are at splashing. About falling asleep on the beach, and about making up a beach song about finding a tiny stone and a snail shell, and a night song about being a star in the sky.
