Watermelon Magic is a lovable and tender story of a farmer’s daughter who believes she has magical powers. When Sylvie’s wand breaks, her mother comforts her by planting a tray of Sylvie’s own watermelon seeds for the young girl to nurture. The plants ‘magically’ grow from seed-to-flower-to-fruit. Time-lapse sequences bring the garden to life on the Giant Screen. Through humor and drama, audiences experience the challenges and rewards of growing food, and the shared community of plants, soil, nature and people that make up a small farm. This enchanting film tells a story of what is truly magical in our lives.

“I liked the part where they grew the watermelons. I didn’t like when the man bought all the watermelons because they might have wanted to have some. I learned how to grow watermelons. I would recommend this movie to a friend. I would have 5 stars for this movie.”
