Description

Chris Berry (Goldsmith's College) 

Chris Berry will discuss and illustrate the way in which today's “on-the-spot”
realism in China is heavily informed by Andre Bazin's French writings from
the 50s and 60s, which were translated into Chinese in the early 80s, and
then by Direct Cinema (USA, 1960s — viewed in Japan by Chinese filmmakers
in the early 1990s), and French cinema verité (France, 1960s, also viewed
in Japan).

This event is open to everyone and free to attend.  No registration required.

This event is part of the Translations and Transformations: China, Modernity, and Cultural Transmission conference being held at New Hall on 1-3 May for which booking is required.
