My China Now – September 2008

Event Date: 07/09/2008

To coincide with the exhibition ‘China: A Photographic Portrait’ at the City Art Centre, the Filmhouse, working with the Confucius Institute for Scotland, presents three programmes of short and experimental films from the moving image project My China Now, which aims to redefine modern-day China in moving images through the prism of a dynamic group of filmmakers and artists.

A collection of fascinating tales of China today, covering every facet of life in shades of humour, pathos, fun, frivolity, frustration and fears, using diverse subjects of change, advance, development, poverty, displacement, fashion, nightlife, food, health, music, business, love, and money: burning topics, issues, and emotions that underpin their experience of the times. Filmmakers from all over China and of all ages and backgrounds. This is their China, now.

Part of the China Now In Scotland festival, this work was commissioned by China Now in collaboration with Intelligent Alternative, Beijing. Distribution in Scotland is handled by the Confucius Institute for Scotland.
