Rainbow Family Screening: Mini-Zlatan and Uncle Darling
A fantastically fun film for all ages, this screening is a dedicated space for rambunctious rainbow families — queer kids, queer parents and even your favourite gunkle. Bring the whole family to this special screening of Mini Zlatan and Uncle Darling.
Ella is excited about summer with her favourite uncle, Tommy, but things get complicated when Tommy’s new boyfriend Steve enters the picture. Ella takes matters into her own hands, orchestrating a Parent Trap-style summer of disaster in the hope of to getting rid of Steve.
Based on the children’s book by Swedish author Pija Lindenbaum.
Before or after the film, families are welcome to explore ACMI and its exhibitions.
Screens with the short film Look The Part (Claire Fletcher, Australia, 2022, 7 mins)
Sam is a disabled cleaner working in a large theatre who has a passion to be a dancer, but she's afraid to step into the light. When Peaches (her magical inner-diva-cum-drag queen) materialises at night, Sam’s creativity takes flight. She rips up a daring dance-number, to the rhythm of The Cat Empire’s beats. Look The Part is the story of talent defying expectation, and magic transforming reality.
