Younger chil- Kids Rate Slate The folks at Cinema Circus are h F'ost" hag another winter screening tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 4, beginning at 5 p.m. at the Chilmark Community Center. The event includes food, activities and, of course, a series of short films. Earlier this week a screening was arranged with Madia Bellebuono, a young Island cineaste, to get the skinny on what's good, great and not so much. Splat the Cat This film is an animation. Its main characters are Splat and Seymour the Mouse. Splat the Cat does not want to go to school, but then he likes it. There is a school and the characters are almost all cats (with one mouse). It makes me want to go to school more often! On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this film a 7. It was pretty funny! The Curious Garden of Kids' Films often don't hear. I rate ira 10 because they use their mouths only and most people use instruments to make.music. New Digs New Digs is where a hamster doesn't like his falling-apart cage. So he gets out of it and goes out the window. As soon as he does, the girl comes in with a brand new cage! She sees that he is gone and starts looking for him. Soon she finds the hamster.When he tried to get back in, he took a vine and whacked into the window (ouch!).After that, he gets put back in the cage. As soon as he does, the girl reaches in and pets him and the hamster hugs her fingers. This is very cute for little kids and I think they'll enjoy it. Slap-back Jack High-5 Master This film used real claymation to show Slap-back Jack, where there is E/i MADIA BELLEBUONO. Makos Swim Club. Cost is $15 for individual tickets or $45 for a fam- ily, ticket: Tickets are available i advance a the Y ember serv ee Foods of Italy February blues have you down? Skies gray, food choices minimal, and it's still weeks away from school break and a potential vacation? How about a gastronomical trip to Italy via the Edgartown Library Foundation?

Town Meating The Farm Institute and Morning Glory Farm are teaming up to screen the film American Meat tonight, Friday, Feb. 3, starting at 6 p.m. at the Morning Glory Farm stand. The film is a documentary about the current state of meat production in the U.S. It is not billed as a mere harangue against the meat industry but .rather looks at the complex issue through the eyes of actual workers at these plants, feedlots and confinement houses. The film also introduces the current revolu- tion developing in animal husbandry. TO go with the film, there will be a meat dinner provided by Chris Fischer of Beetlebung Farm. Dinner is served There was a boy who loved to ex- plore outside. One day he came upon a way to the railroad tracks. He saw some garden life and he took care of it very well. One day the garden went off exploring and now the garden is ev- erywhere! This film makes me want to garden more and be outside and enjoy life. I would recommend this to other kids because it's appropriate and it's really good for learning how to garden. Jillion Dillon Jillion is a hippoplatypus and her friends are mean to her. So one day her friends build a boat out of hay and clay. The boat breaks and the platypus saves the day. This film makes me feel that if friends are in danger, you want to save them. You should always feel happy for what you are and enjoy your life. I would recommend this to other kids because it will help other kids know that it's important to feel happy for other people. Don't Go This was very funny -- it was the funniest one and my favorite, and I watched it over and over again! A cat is eating very peacefully and a pink robot comes along and the cat starts chasing it. The robot goes into a music holder and changes the song and starts dancing to the music. Soon the cat comes and starts chasing the robot in circles. It's a little pink robot with one eye, we keep seeing it go round and round without the cat chasing it.The cat got tired from going round and round. It was so funny because it actually played a real cat and it kept doing little-dances. It made me want to play and get exercise and have fun with friends! AH the Cats There is this baby carriage, and a cat gangster comes up and starts beat- boxing. The baby in the carriage stops crying and plays a maraca. All the cats, at night, come into a spot in a building and start beat-boxing and singing. This film made me feel that a lot of people shou!d start doing music and enjoying it! It's a very new type of music that you a huge baseball game and Bub hits a grand slam. He gets back to home plate. He tries slapping and knuckle hitting to celebrate, but each time he did that his hands and knuckles slipped away. So his coach told him to go see Slap-back Jack High-5 Master. I get out of this film that you should always feel good for your teammates. It's a really great film for little kids and how they should act. But there's one thing that you should never do; hang your head and say you can't do something. The Rap on Kid Critic Madia Bellebuono Age: 9. School Name: Fourth grade at Chilmark Elementary School.
