"Situation Room" Film Screening

Storefront for Art and Architecture

This event has ended.

Michelangelo Antonioni's 1972 documentary Chung Kuo is a rare and epic depiction of China as a nation caught on the cusp of massive, far-reaching transformation. When screened at the Venice Film Festival in 1974, this stark yet ultimately sympathetic portrait sparked off a diplomatic incident and was denounced by the Chinese government as a vicious act of anti-Chinese propaganda. (The Party had approved and supervised/surveilled the 8-week shooting, but Antonioni deployed secret cameras at various points to shoot un-preapproved locations.)
