Designed for children Pre-K through 5th grade to share with their families, caregivers and teachers, Watermelon Magic is a sweet combination of story and science devoted to one of our most basic human needs: healthy food. Audiences will delight in this nearly wordless burst of color and music. Weaving together documentary and narrative elements, Watermelon Magic chronicles a season on the family farm, as young Sylvie grows a patch of watermelons to sell at market. The film pairs high-resolution stills at varying shutter-burst frame rates with stunning time-lapse sequences to trace the journey from seed to flower to fruit. When harvest time arrives, Sylvie must decide if she will share her precious watermelon babies with the world.
