The inaugural Family Flix series explored the continent’s past, illuminated contemporary Asian America, and embraced the best of the human spirit with a musical celebration in war-torn southern Philippines. The next chapter in family films at Asia Society Texas Center will focus on a summer international children’s film festival, curated by the Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, with the goal of bringing some of Asia’s best feature length pieces and shorts to Texas for their respective premieres. Stay tuned for more information on these films, which will explore cross-cultural friendship, the simple pleasures of everyday life, and coming-of-age in the contemporary world.
Drop in at Asia Society Texas Center each month for an art-making activity as you learn about the rich and varied cultures of Asia. Explore such traditions as folk art from the Indian state of Bihar, architectural designs from the ancient Near East, and aboriginal patterns from the Pacific. Families and children of all ages are welcome to stop by and participate in these free events.
