Inside Hana's Suitcase

Inside Hana's Suitcase

A special screening for Holocaust Memorial Day

Friday 26 January, 10am •  1h28min, £3/free for teachers, English, Czech and Japanese with English subtitles, Certificate PG, Suitable for P6-S3, Religious and Moral Education, History

Hana Brady was just a little girl when she and her brother George were singled out at Jews, and sent away from home by the Nazis. Seventy years later a class of Japanese children received a package from the Holocaust museum in Germany. It contained what appears to be Hana’s suitcase and from this starting point the children and their teacher begin to unravel her story. A moving film which deals with the difficult subject of the holocaust, and a wider theme of tolerance.

A website and online learning resource to support the film is available here.

Group Discounts

Primary screening at Filmhouse

 

We recognise that many teachers are finding it increasingly difficult  to bring groups to see films during class time, so to address this we offer 25% off tickets to public screenings at Belmont when bringing a group of ten or more pupils.

This discount applies to concession price tickets for pupils and full  price tickets for accompanying adults – details of our ticket prices for public screenings can be found here. Tickets should be booked through our box office on 01224 343 500

We hope that this discount will allow school groups to attend a range of  films at more suitable times. Please note that at public screenings we  expect all members of the audience to respect those around them, which  includes switching off mobile phones.
