This short Canadian film starts using stop-motion animation showing a girl named Harmony who talks to the moon before bed each evening. The moon then gives her a small task based upon what they talked about, which she then completes with the help of some animal friends (puppets) while she is dreaming. This part takes place in live action. The production quality is very good. It switches from stop motion to live action to parts that are slightly animated. It is very fun to watch. The material covers Harmony learning new words in the ancient Haida language through music, while she builds a toy kite with the help of her friend, the raven. There are talking animals, a child on a mission and lots of wonderful music. The structure flows well. It teaches a new language. The young actress portraying the girl is quite charming and radiant. All the voice over talent is excellent as well. Visually the set is quite well done and all the different types of media - animation, live action and stop motion make it intriguing to watch. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars! This film is most suitable for children ages 4 to 7 and I highly recommend it for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival. Reviewed by Amana M. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Jurors
