Screening of 1921
August 27 | Time: 19:00 – 22: 30 (BST)
1921, Shanghai – a city divided up into separate foreign-occupied zones and loyalties. A group of passionate young Chinese intellectuals flood the streets to reclaim their country, sparking a revolution whose impact continues to this day.
A blockbuster epic that charts the lengths dreamers will go to in order to change the world, 1921 combines spy warfare with sweeping romance to present the forming of modern China.
Post-screening Q&A Professor Astrid Nordin
August 28 | Time: 13:00 – 14: 00 (BST)
Professor Astrid Nordin holds the Lau Chair of Chinese International Relations in the Lau China Institute. She is also Senior Fellow of the Institute for Social Futures, and Associate Research Fellow at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs.
Astrid’s research develops critical conceptual tools that draw on Chinese and other global traditions of thought, and uses these to understand global challenges as they relate to China’s growing global role – from the Belt and Road Initiative, through sustainable cities, to practices of censorship and resistance. Her favourite thing about her job is learning new things from exciting people, and she welcomes suggestions for collaboration relating to her expertise.
The Webinar Q&A will be hosted by Dr Hiu Man Chan, Founder & Director of UK-China Film Collab.
