10th Kids Euro Festival: “Extraordinary tales” movie screening at the Luxembourg Embassy

Published Thursday October 26 2017

Kids Euro Festival is one of the largest cultural festivals for children in the United States. Now in its 10th year, the festival returns to the Washington, D.C., metro area from October 21 to November 5, 2017 and features free, family-friendly performances, concerts, movies, and workshops that provide a flavor of European arts and culture.

The Luxembourg Embassy will screen this Sunday, October 29th, at 3pm, the animation movie “Extraordinary tales”, a co-production between Luxembourg, Belgium, Spain and the United States. “Extraordinary tales” is an anthology of five stories adapted from the famous writer Edgar Allan Poe. 

Poe's spirit, embodied in his most famous creation, the Crow, faces Death while visiting the grave of his beloved wife Virginia Clemm. The time has come and Death wants to steal the poet's soul, but Poe needs to linger a little bit more in the world of the living, and soon he engages with Death in a creepy story-telling game where both parts play the role of a macabre Scheherazade. The stories they exchange are the extraordinary tales written during his tortured life.

“Extraordinary tales” by Raul Garcia is a 73 minutes horror-mystery animation starring the voices of Christopher Lee, Guillermo del Toro and others. The movie, for children age 10+ and adults, will be screened in English at the Luxembourg Embassy, 2200 Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, D.C. 20008, this Sunday, October 29th, at 3 pm.
