The M.A. Film Studies Program and C.V Starr East Asian Library presents, "Memory Project: Chinese Independent Documentaries" on Monday, October, 22 at 8pm.
Chinese documentary filmmakers of the only-child generation explore their identities by engaging with the past. In 2011, these directors returned to their ancestral villages to uncover oral histories from their grandparents. Found memories are uncovered of a different China paralyzed in fear and famine.
This event features a screening and conversations with Wu Wenguang, Zou Xueping, Zhang Mengqi, and Luo Bing in Dodge Hall in the Lifetime Screening Room.
There will be an introduction by Professor Nico Baumbach, Film Division and the conversation will be moderated by Dr. Junjie Chen, Visiting ACLS Anthropologist.
