September 25, 2009 — Chinese Film Archivists Visit NYU

Three representatives of China's Film Archive visited NYU on Sept 25 and held a 2 hour discussion with faculty and students.

Deputy Director Rao Shuguang and Research Fellow Li Xun discussed archival projects and talked extensively about films made in China during the first 17 years after their 1949 revolution. Many of these films are showing as a part of the New York Film Festival entitled (Re)Inventing China: A New Cinema for a New Society, 1949-1966.

Their visit to NYU was arranged by Cinema Studies professor Zhen Zhang, and included participation of MIAP faculty Howard Besser and Bill Brand.
