Event description: Based on a famous Argentinian children's song. Manuelita is a young turtle who gets lost from home in a runaway balloon. On her trip, she makes new friends and discovers a talent for hat-making. A simple story with sweet songs, it's perfect for the youngest viewers (and rarely seen on the big screen!). (Manuel Garc�a Ferr�, Argentina, 1999, Digital; 86 minutes.)

Family Film-goers can stop at Indie Food and Wine before or after the film for an afternoon treat like the "indie lunch box," a meal that features a New York State cheddar grilled cheese sandwich on multi-grain bread with an apple and house-made hot chocolate ($6).
