Confetti: Film Screening and Discussion with Writer/Director Ann Hu

October 5 @ 5:00 pm

How far would a mother go to reverse her child’s fate? On Tuesday, October 5, China Institute invites you to join us for a screening of Confetti, a brand-new film that takes the audience from rural China to the streets of New York City. Following the screening, filmmaker Ann Hu joins us for a talk back to talk about U.S.-China film collaboration.

Written, produced, and directed by award-winning New York-based filmmaker Ann Hu, Confetti is a heart-filled mother/daughter story that looks at the often-silent struggles faced by so many immigrant families. Featuring affecting performances by Zhu Zhu, Amy Irving, and Harmonie He, Confetti shows that amongst a deluge of challenges, a sprinkling of hope, heart, and determination can help make sense of a confusing world and our place in it.

6:30 PM – Talk-back with Ann Hu

7:00 – Reception
