Games, an online film festival for kids and families
English with Spanish interpretation
18th Street Art Center presents Games, an online screening of videos that loop on the hour. Artists Paul Pescador and Maura Brewer bring together a selection of artworks from Los Angeles and Latin America that consider the theme of play. Today, we are stuck at home, bored and passing time, waiting for life to start up again. The videos in this screening explore the possibility of play in daily life, imagining the world as a space of limitless potential. Expect bouncing balls, fussy puppies and a tropical paradise.
