‘The Folk Memory Project’: Making Independent Documentary Films in China.
 – Talk and film screening with Wu Wenguang 

Wu Wenguang, China’s pioneering independent documentary filmmaker and co-founder of the Caochangdi Workstation in Beijing, will present his ‘Folk Memory Project’; a daring collaboration between filmmakers and villagers to document the Great Famine of 1959-1961, a topic that the Chinese Communist Party still has to come to terms with.

On the 29th Wu Wenguang and his colleagues will introduce the project, followed by a screening of one of their films, after which there will be time for questions and discussion. The event is free of charge and all are welcome!
