Recap: Seeing China Through Film: Confetti, with Ann Hu, 10.5.21

Seeing China Through Film is CI’s 10-part tour of China’s greatest films, as curated by Columbia University Film Professor Richard Pena, former Program Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

On October 5, guests came to China Institute to watch Confetti, the new film written, produced, and directed by award-winning New York-based filmmaker Ann Hu. The heart-filled mother/daughter story 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.

Confetti Confession: We neglected to record the full discussion and apologize for our inability to share that content with you.
