According to the syllabus we have fallen behind because of the visit from the Japanese university students. I had to eliminate either my lecture on Chinese youth or the feature film from China. I chose this film over my lecture on Chinese youth since the director, Li Yang, will be coming to USC on April 23 and will be showing this film on the evening of April 24. I’ve organized a three day conference on Chinese film from April 24-26. I’ll try to bring Director Li to the class to answer questions about the film, if possible]. 1
