Martin Duda

Czech Republic, 2015 / 26 min / French version dubbed in Luxembourgish / Animation

Part of the short film collection The Great Adventures of Rosa & Dara

Together with her inventive grandmother and her dog, twins Rosa and Dara go on a journey full of adventures and brimming with creativity.

Seven-year-old twins Rosa and Dara are spending the summer holiday at their grandparents’ old house full of inventions and surprises: from GPS-equipped cows to a flying car and a hidden rocket in a grain silo. One day things get complicated when Laiko, their curious dog, scares off Grandma’s cows to different corners of the world. It’s up to the twins, Laiko and Grandma to bring them back home safely. Their rescue mission leads them to the mouth of a volcano on Iceland, to giant sequoia forests full of wild bears in California, and even to outer space. Together, the three discover our planet’s marvels and live an unforgettable summer.
