Duke University Library Panel – Filmmakers of the Memory Project

October 27, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The Memory Project aims to shine light on one of modern China’s most traumatic events, the Great Famine of 1958-1961, by collecting oral histories from survivors in rural areas. The amateur filmmakers discovered their family histories and identities in the process of interviewing the villagers, reconciling the official history taught in schools with each family’s true experiences.
