This year Cinecidade is challenging us to find out what’s hidden beyond the rainbow. And it’s not doing it by halves: they’ll be bringing hidden treasure, witches and scarecrows, balloons and tin men, lions, dinosaurs and even talking dogs to Lisbon Zoo! The programme is made up of classic American adventure films, from the 1930s right up to the 2000s. Timeless films for all the family which, in addition to taking us on unforgettable journeys, encourage us to reflect on the conservation of animal life (the thinking behind the choice of this year’s venue).
The Wizard of Oz
By Victor Fleming
(USA, 1939), 102 mins, Fiction, Colour
With: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan & Ray Bolger
Dorothy lives on a farm in Kansas. One day, as she and her dog are running away from a bad neighbour, they’re caught in a tornado which carries them to the magical land of Oz. Wishing to return home, Dorothy must make her way to the Emerald City where there’s a great wizard who can help her. On the way she meets a Scarecrow who wants a brain, a Tin Man who desires a heart and a Cowardly Lion who needs courage. They all hope the Wizard of Oz can help them before they’re caught by the Wicked Witch of the West…
The song Over the Rainbow, performed by Judy Garland (Dorothy), tops the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 best songs of American cinema.
