Watermelon Magic 3D
Now Playing
Franklin Institute
Philadelphia, PA - $

Watermelon Magic is a sweet and tender film about Sylvie, a young girl who learns to grow and part with one of nature’s most loved summer fruits – the watermelon. The film opens with Sylvie using her magic wand to play tricks on her family. When Sylvie’s magic wand breaks, her mother comforts her by planting a tray of seeds. As Sylvie begins to care for the plants she witnesses the seedlings come to life in the greenhouse and deeply connects with the tiny plants she is growing. The Director of Photography for Watermelon Magic is Chase Bowman, a former Kids Corner listener, now all grown up! For more information, visit
