Adapted from a short story of the same name by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Match Girl is directed by Meritorious Artist Le Thu Huyen.

Children will follow the story of a poor young girl, who has to sell matches on the streets on a freezing New Year’s Eve.

The magic matches make all her wishes come true: a holiday feast, beautiful clothes, an adventure through the ocean, and above all, her lost mother’s love, who finally comes to pick her up to a place where she would live happily ever.

The old story is made modern by Thu Huyen but keeps its meaningful messages of love and sympathy between people. The artist uses the snow spraying technology and impressive lighting effects to bring more joys to the little audience.

Meanwhile, Our World, directed by Meritorious Artist Duc Hung, is a joyful and interactive puppet show.

Children will be entertained by familiar characters such as Santa Claus, Snow White and Seven Dwarfs, Elsa, Anna, and Cinderella.
