Audiences will get a sneak preview of two of the most spectacular films on the Guth Gafa programme at free screenings at Headfort House on Friday afternoon.
Two award-winning and family-friendly documentaries, Twin Sisters and Happiness will be screened free of charge at2pm and 4pm respectively.
Twin Sisters, a Norwegian-made documentary follows the lives of twin baby girls found in a cardboard box in a Chinese village and adopted to two different corners of the world.
One of them lives in a little village in Norway, the other in a big city in the USA.
The adoptive parents had no idea that there was a twin sister but destiny had other plans.
Happiness, a French Finnish production, focuses on the life of an eight year old monk living in a remote village in Bhutan, high in the Himalayas. Soon the world will come to him as his village will be connected to electricity and he will see television for the first time.
The screenings are part of Cinemobile’s North by Northwest-Films on the Fringe project.
Both films will be repeated in the festival programme at the weekend.
