The Movie Collection: China – Through the Looking Glass

China Looking Glass Movies

Last month I visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the China: Through the Looking Glass exhibit. It was stunning, to say the least. This exhibition houses some of the most beautiful haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear pieces of clothing alongside Chinese art and screens featuring Chinese movies.

The entire exhibit tells a story, and the art, music, film screenings, and fashion draws you in completely. Not only was I completely absorbed with the fashion designs, but I was also captivated by the movies that were chosen to be screened alongside the clothing. These are the movies I took note of while walking through the exhibit, and I plan on watching every single one.
