An ant is no match for a grasshopper, but courage, like all good things, comes in small packages.
Treasure House is holding a screening of the animation movie, "A Bug's Life" on 27th November, 2 pm to 3.45 pm.
A bunch of nasty grasshoppers terrorize a colony of ants to gather food for them all throughout the year, and give them in an annual 'offering' in winter. The unpopular scientist ant Flik accidentally upturns the whole offering one winter, and dares to confront the grasshoppers. The grasshoppers, as a punishment, bid the ants to gather double the regular quantity, and fly away after warning the ants of dire consequences if they failed.
The ants vent their anger at Flik, and send him on the mission to hire bugs to fight the grasshoppers, hoping to get rid of him for a few days. Flik sets out on his mission confidently, and through a series of misunderstandings, brings home a gang of inept bugs who are actually the part of a circus troupe. The remaining story unfolds how Flik, along with his kooky inventions and bug buddies, saves the ants' colony.
The film, directed by John Lasseter and Andrew Stanton, was nominated in "Best Music" category for the Oscars and "Best Achievement In Special Visual Effects" for BAFTA Awards. The film won the KCFCC Award for "Best Animated Film".
The screening is free for members, and non-members will be charged Rs. 100 per person. Please contact 2355-0118 for further information.
