    Festival Animanie was a whimsical event! It’s uniquely for children & hosts perspectives from native youth around the world. My student was honored to share her hand-drawn animation of the water cycle, in a taro patch, on a mountain top, in Hawaii. It's a dream to have her work seen by an audience in the romantic Czech Republic! Aloha!
