"Join us for TWO SCREENINGS and a LIVE Q&A with insiders from the burgeoning Chinese indie film scene:

6:30-7:15 PMSAN YUAN LI (45 min, OU Ning, CAO Fei, 2003)

Equipped with video cameras, twelve artists present a highly-stylized portrait of SAN YUAN LI, a traditional village besieged by China's urban sprawl. Reminiscent of Dziga Vertov's THE MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA (USSR, 1929) and Godfrey Reggio's KOYAANISQATSI (USA, 1982), China's rapid modernization is brilliantly presented, with fast-edited scenes choreographed to music. Commissioned by the Venice Berlinale, SAN YUAN LI explores the modern paradox of China's economic growth and social marginalization.

7:20-7:40 PMDIGITAL UNDERGROUND IN THE PRC(18 min: 6 episodes, 3 min each, Rachel Tejada, 2008)

On a mission to acquire films and seek out the best and brightest of the Chinese independent film scene, Karin Chien and Suyin So from dGenerate Films visited post-Olympics China in September 2008 Traveling from Shanghai to Nanjing to Beijing with cameras rolling, they found China's OTHER film community. Join them as they visit the largest underground film festival in China, explore the spirit of independence in Beijing, tour film compounds, attend a government-approved film event, and discuss the future of Chinese cinema. Karin Chien and other members of the dGenerate Films team will lead an open discussion.(Videos courtesy of Chunnel.tv and Berlin Cameron United/WPP)
