Legends To Live By

REDCAT International Children’s Film Festival

This collection of legends, myths, and fables takes a journey around the globe to unearth powerful tales about life and its mysteries. Learn why the eagle is bald, why lightning always comes before thunder, and what grows on a story tree. Dive into the daily drama of 16th-century Mesoamerica, take part in a traditional Mexican Semana Santa, and travel to Africa to learn how one person can feed an entire village. Don’t stop until you have cheered a dragon slayer and visited magical lands far beyond the one we inhabit!
