  • KIDS IN CHINA is a high energy documentary of children in and around Kunming, China, from the unique point of view of the six-year old narrator. Much of the multi-cultural assimilation in Canada is taking place in our urban elementary schools. There are surprisingly few tools to help this process. KIDS IN CHINA shows the interaction between Chinese kids and their Canadian visitors with performances of songs and dance, learning English, and playing. Visits to bird markets, the zoo, and food markets intersperse the classroom scenes. Animation of friend and panda stimulates Mandarin character recognition. Rural life is contrasted to urban life.
