A magically inventive and wondrously bright journey through time and place, this collection of films transports and transforms curious minds, taking us on an enchanting trip from 70’s Hong Kong to the neighborhood park, and perhaps meeting a fungi or two along the way. Selected by the family unit of Glenda Gamboa, Children’s Librarian and mom, Kamayo Quizon, Pre-Teen Movie Buff and son, and Joel Quizon, the dad. — Joel Quizon
