In today's digital era where children have easy access to screens and the internet, movies or films play a significant role in shaping their views and imaginations. As young cinephiles children actively learn and explore through cinematic experience. In this blog, we’ll look at the impact of movies on children and their future. Young Cinephiles learn and absorb quickly through the visual medium.
In our last art session, we conducted the art session on the topic ‘Young Cinephiles’ where our young film enthusiasts told us about their favourite movies, cartoons, drama and the superheroes they adore. Movies provide valuable insights to young cinephiles about different cultures and events. Children learn important life lessons from movies based on characters from diverse backgrounds. They learn to relate to people with different lifestyles and stories, which develops empathy and compassion. Movies are also helpful in teaching lessons to children that no one in their family talks about including topics on mental health, relationships and sexuality. Films are instrumental in educating us about subjects our parents might not discuss openly. Our art sessions were conducted in 25 Government schools in Varanasi.
“Once I went to the cinema hall with my parents to watch a movie. It was fun. I love watching Baalveer on TV. By combining the powers of all the queens, the form of Baalveer has been created, who has been sent to earth to protect the people and the Natkhat Pari helps him. If I get a chance, I will also become a Natkhat Pari and help Baalveer” - Sakshi, a class 5th student said.
Another 2nd standard student, Samrat said “I like watching multi-do channels on YouTube. There is a man on it who makes everyone play games. He places some items on a table and covers it with a box with holes in it. People who play have to guess which item is in the box by touching the item. And the one who gives the correct answer gets that item as a reward. I also want to play a similar game and win Frooti. There are no such games in the fairs I visit. When I grow up, I will organize such games in my locality.”
