LEADING SCHOLARSHIP ON CHINESE CINEMA

Emily Tang’s Conjugation was the first Chinese film to directly reference the Tiananmen Square events and won a special mention for direction at the 2001 Locarno International Film Festival. The film fictionalizes recent college graduates in Beijing who struggle to continue their lives after the tensions and horrors of the events they witnessed first-hand. The film works with sometimes painful realism and clarity. In Mandarin with English subtitles. Introduction by Filmmaker Evans Chan. (35mm Presentation)
