Things to do with kids in Harlem: Film in Action at Maysles Institute

Know any 7-11 year olds that love movies? Then you may want to tell them about Film in Action created by Harlem’s Maysles Institute. Film In Action is an eight-week film club program for children to begin thinking critically about what they watch, and to have fun and develop an appetite for something other than the usual. The program starts April 21 and runs to June 16 from 1 pm to 3 pm. The costs per person is $200. See additional details below or go to Maysles Institute’s website to learn more.
