The Film Society at China Institute offers a series of programs for Sinophiles and Cinephiles to explore the diverse and dynamic world of Chinese film!  In May and June, we will feature two back to back series on Chinese Youth in the ‘80s and ‘90s to explore the radical changes taking place in Chinese society against the backdrop of exponential economic growth and the political turmoil of 1989.  For our June selections, focusing on Youth in the ‘90s, we will screen Out of Phoenix Bridge and Suzhou River.
