MONDAYS (December 5 - January 9)

Explore short films from around the world and engage children in discussion about what they watch. In each class we will watch short films that explore different aspects of filmmaking and stories from around the world. An instructor will lead students, parents, and teachers in discussion. They will be encouraged to look, listen, feel, and think about what they are watching. Our goal is to create engaged critical thinkers about the media that surrounds them, and to give parents an opportunity to learn new ways to talk about what they are watching with their kids.
