McCormick Hall 101
Free and Open to the Public
I am writing to invite you and students at the Paul and Marcia Wythes Center on Contemporary China to the world premiere of Paris, Ni Hao, a documentary film about Chinese immigrants in Paris that I have shot and edited with the support of a Martin A. Dale ’53 Summer Award and under the guidance of award-winning filmmaker Purcell Carson of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
This 40-minute film explores the evolving and sometimes tense relationship of eight first and second-generation Chinese immigrants with their adoptive city and how they must redefine themselves to thrive in their new surroundings. One of the film’s main characters, Rui Wang, will join me and Purcell after each screening for a discussion focused on cultural displacement, immigration, and human rights.
A trailer and other information can be found at http://parisnihao.com.
Paris, Ni Hao will premiere Wednesday, April 20th, at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, April 23rd, at 2:00 p.m. in McCormick Hall 101, adjacent to the Princeton University Art Museum. I would be thrilled if you could come and if you could share this with everyone at CCC!
Admission is free, but space is limited, so please RSVP.
Hoping you can make it,
Very best wishes,
