New York Kids Weekend Fun

September 24 & 25, 2022

We are sharing some fabulous events below, all taking place this weekend in NYC.


The Architecture of Trees (Family Program)
Saturday September 24
The Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Place, New York, NY 10280
Free

Why are trees talented architects? Architects can spend years designing their buildings, but trees have been perfecting their own architecture in response to their environment for eons. On a guided walk in Battery Park City, we will observe and draw the trees around us to understand how they are like skyscrapers! We will learn about how trunks and branches support their leaves or needles and how roots create strong foundations. All ages welcome. RSVP Required.

Kiarostami For Kids
Sunday September 25
Arverne Cinema, 72-02 Gouverneur Avenue, Queens, NY 11692
$10 adults, kids go free

For three decades Abbas Kiarostami created films specifically for and about children, as part of his work at Kanoon (the Center Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults in Tehran). Gathered in this program are five rarely seen shorts from this time. Intended to be educational, these early films are a mix of both moral tales and formalistic exercises. Some rely on whimsical visual gags (a boy daydreams about racing down a toy track in a red slot car), or an amusing mix of animation and live action (a child imitates the actions of a cartoon kangaroo), while others reveal Kiarostami’s unique documentary-based approach from later films (a young boy drifts aimlessly along a busy highway). Whether conveying practical knowledge or capturing the inherent curiosity in children’s lives, Kiarostami’s radical sense of humanity is nevertheless front and center in these stunning early shorts—which together offer a chance to explore the origins of one of the world’s most empathetic and introspective filmmakers.
