Today, the 4 and 5M pupils were treated to a morning out at the cinema, Kinoteka, to watch, on the big screen, a montage of 4M’s previous animating exploits, and an animated feature film. The pupils were welcomed by the staff at Kinoteka, and then the host, Vitja Dominkus Dreu, gave some commentary and insight into the pupils own animations. This was followed by an introduction to the Irish animated feature entitled The Secret of Kells. The fim is a fictionalised account of the history of creation of The Book of Kells – an illuminated manuel gospel book – during the viking raids in the middle ages.
