The Kids Talk Film: Jackie Chan's POLICE STORY
Twitch has been on the Internet so long that many of its writing staff have children old enough to understand and consume media in a way that is both raw and fresh. It might even come with an inkling of consideration afterwards and it's true that many of us fall in love with the movies when we are very young. Thus, we are offering you the perspective of smaller children as they react to seeing classic filmmaking on the big screen.
In the past, Willem (Age 10) and Miranda (Age 8) have talked the films of Studio Ghibli as well as Satoshi Kon's Paprika and Pixar's Brave. The recently got a chance to see Jackie Chan in person as a part of the A Century of Chinese Cinema retrospective in Toronto. Jackie talked about shifting from period kung-fu films to contemporary stunt-driven action films when introducing a 35mm print of Police Story. Afterwards, the kids talk just how crazy-awesome Jackie was when he was ripping up Hong Kong shopping malls and juggling telephone receivers.
The entire archives of Kids Talk Film can be found over at Vimeo including discussion on films as varied as Gremlins, The Rocketeer, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
