2015 Chinese Environmental Film Festival
February 26-28, 2015
Full Screening Program
For three days at the end of February, I'll be in Greenville, South Carolina, attending the Chinese Environmental Film Festival organized by Professor Tami Blumenfield and the entire Asian Studies department at Furman University. This is going to be a fantastic event and a unique chance to see, and discuss, a range of films by Chinese and US-based filmmaker-scholars that all address questions of environmental change and its impact on society.
My film, 农家乐 Peasant Family Happiness, will screen on Friday, February 27, at 7 p.m., followed by commentary and discussion with me, Professor Emily Yeh (Geography, U Colorado Boulder) and Professor Kate Kaup (Political Science, Furman University). I'll also be discussing the Chinese independent documentary, Beijing Besieged by Waste, earlier that day alongside Ralph Litzinger (Anthropology, Duke University).
This is a really exciting group of films and scholars that will gather in Greenville for the festival, and I'm so pleased to be a part of this important conversation about the relationships between Chinese society and environmental change. All events are free and open to the public.
