C3: CURTAIN UP!
Children of immigrants are rarely encouraged to pursue the arts, something that is not lost on the theater club students at P.S. 142 in New York’s Chinatown. Join filmmakers Hui Tong and Kelly Ng as they discuss how a children’s production of “Frozen” provided the opportunity for a group of young actors to learn about themselves and their community and to break down stereotypes about Asian Americans in media. — Mia Barnett
