In New York’s Chinatown, elementary school kids prepare their national premiere of “Frozen KIDS.” They face stereotypes about Asians in the entertainment industry and pressure from their parents, but they take it all in stride. Nothing can distract them from their goal: Opening Night. — Mia Barnett

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
