Chinese Film Series
Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies

The film series of the Center for Chinese Studies continues to present outstanding films from the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan as well as the United States which reflect the diversity and sophistication of current Chinese cinema. The Chinese language films are subtitled in English and provide an opportunity for non-Chinese speakers to learn about Chinese culture and society. Occasional film events of this center allow for an opportunity to meet with specific directors and hear them discuss their work. The series is free and open to the public. Schedules for the series are available from the China Center and from the LRCCS website by month.
