Film Screening and Director Q&A: A Chronicle of My Cultural Revolution (2007)
October 25, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This documentary of personal experiences of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) starts with the director’s own love story. At 16, he wrote an unsigned love letter to a classmate, who gave the letter to her teacher. Xu was labeled a “counter-revolutionary” and sent to prison. Others recount similarly hilarious and ironic yet profoundly moving, tragic tales.
Xu Xing (徐星) is a writer, documentary ﬁlmmaker and public intellectual currently residing in Beijing. His iconic novel Variations Without a Theme《无主题变奏》deﬁned 1980s youth culture. Ever since, Xu’s works have focused on those on society’s fringes.
Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to meet Xu Xing and discuss his film after the screening.
