Documentary Production Between China and the US
11:45 AM, Thursday 27 Sep 2018 (1 hour 30 minutes)
ArcLight Hollywood - Theater 8
Producer/distributor Karin Chien introduces us to a group of extraordinary Chinese independent documentary filmmakers living and working in the US. A diasporic community has developed in the last few years as a result of the changing political climate of mainland China. For the first time, we speak directly to the needs and concerns of these fellow artists. Here we explore the unique considerations of making and showing work in and around China’s censorship system. As more filmmakers travel to China to film and sign distribution agreements, there is a greater need for a nuanced understanding and honest dialogue around the realities of documentary- making in China.
