Internationally Renowned Filmmaker Comes to Campus as part of Year of China

 

As part of the College’s Year of China events, A&S is excited to welcome internationally renowned filmmaker Carma Hinton to campus this week. Keiko Tanaka, sociology professor and Director of the Asia Center, will show the documentary, “Morning Sun,” in her class, “Passport to China: Global Issues & Local Understanding.” "Morning Sun" is a psychological history of China's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, which took place from 1964-1976. The film provides a multi-perspective view of a tumultuous period as seen through the eyes — and reflected in the hearts and minds — of members of the high-school generation that was born around the time of the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.

Hinton was born and lived in China until she was 21. She received a doctorate in art history from Harvard University and has lectured on Chinese culture, history, and film at various educational institutions around the world.

The film will be shown on October 25 at 5:00pm in room 118 of the Whitehall Classroom Building. The discussion of the film with Hinton will be held on October 27 at 5:00pm also in room 118 of the Whitehall Classroom Building.

The film showing and discussion are free and open to the public. This is a great opportunity to not only see a powerful film but to also get insight into the importance of these events in Chinese history from the filmmaker herself.
