Val Wang - Beijing Bastard: Into the Wilds of a Changing China

Saturday, November 8, 2014 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Nearly fifty years after her parents fled Communist China, Wang, in an act of adolescent rebellion, left the American suburbs for Beijing. If her relatives hewed a traditional line, the rest of the city did not, and Wang plunged into China’s transformation, not just observing the rise of skyscrapers and the blossoming of an artistic avant-garde, but participating as a documentary filmmaker and writer.
