Lotte and the Moonstone Secret is the second Estonian feature based on the famous children's character Lotte, that hit the book shelves in 2000 receiving rave reviews.
Whenever Lotte looks at the moon, she wonders who might live there. One night two small hooded figures try to snatch a magic stone which Lotte’s uncle Klaus brought back from a trip to the mountains. Lotte prevents the theft and in doing so discovers that the stone possesses mysterious powers. The people who travelled with her uncle on his earlier trip also own stones like these. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, Lotte persuades her uncle to accompany her on an adventure-filled expedition. A lovelorn musician turns out to be the least of the problems that Lotte and her uncle must overcome, for the hooded figures are also hot on their heels. The stones belong to them, and they must retrieve them before the moon fades once more.
This children's animation offers a rich array of endearing characters and hilarious ideas. It celebrates imagination and the many little adventures life has to offer those who are curious.
Winner of 10 awards, including Grand Prize for Animation at the India Children's Film Festival and 2nd Prize for Animated Feature at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival.
Net proceeds go to Queen Victoria Annex 'Building a New Playground' Located at 1850 East 3rd Ave, next to McSpadden Park in East Vancouver.
Our playground is being demolished and it is up to the parents and families to find the funds to rebuild. Being a school of only 165 children, the challenge of raising funds for a new playground is big. We need your help.
