Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2013 Day 5: China Fantasia
The internationally lauded Children’s Film Festival Seattle returns to Asia Society Texas Center for more films overflowing with adventure and glee, wonder and magic. Now in its 8th year, the Festival has become one of the largest and most respected film festivals dedicated to children and their families. This year, curator Elizabeth Shepherd and her colleagues have created feasts for the eyes that take us from China to Colombia.
Thrill to the artistry, imagination and deep love of Chinese culture on display in animator Joe Chang’s China Fantasia. This sumptuously told tale blends popular Chinese folk music with Chang’s masterful use of traditional Chinese painting techniques, cut-paper, and glorious swirling color.
