China Culture Connect on Today's Lucky Cat
Today I will be joined by film curator Jingjing Xie and art curator Xuhua 'Sylvia' Zhan from China Culture Connect.
We'll be talking about the upcoming documentaries they are screening at the BFI. Unfortunately this event is now sold out! Hopefully there will be more screenings planned, I will ask about this.
Films showing at the BFI for Unseen China on Feb 25th:
Documenting China's traditional Spring Festival (New Year) in 2008, when millions of people returning home faced the coldest winter in 100 years.
My Four-Fen Land (Wo De Si Fen Di) portrays peasant life oblivious to world turbulence.
Viewpoint (Guan Dian) illustrates the complexities of a labour market.
Water and Land (Shui Shang An Shang) is a dramatic portrait of a young woman struggling to realise her dreams.
Brave Father (Fu Qin) narrates the heart-rending efforts of a parent to support his son's future.
Tune in to Resonance 104.4FM today at 3.30pm (UK). Podcast to follow.
