This is a journey to childhood for both for adults and children, and an invitation to discover how childhood has been projected in the cinema over its more than one hundred years of history. This is the idea behind the exhibition organised in the City of Culture by La Cinémathèque Française and the "la Caixa" Foundation, in partnership with the Regional Government of Galicia as part of the holy year of St James, Xacobeo 2021. Through it, visitors can once more live the emotions we experienced in the early years of our lives.
The exhibition is composed of fragments of films from a variety of genres, periods and countries. In addition, there are drawings, storyboards, photographs of shoots, posters, mock-ups, as well as iconic objects such as a hat and two pipes of the actor and director Jacques Tati, a statue of King Kong measuring over two metres, and a Nimbus 2000 broomstick from the film Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. The pieces come from the funds of La Cinémathèque Française, which are among the richest in the world in the field of the cinema, as well as the personal collections of film makers and collectors.
