Swimming Out Till the Sea Turns Blue

Original title: 一直游到海水变蓝 [Yi zhi you dao hai shui bian lan]

Jia Zhang-ke has made many films in his hometown of Fenyang, Shanxi Province. Due to its economic role and rich tradition, the region has a special history. Many writers took the Shanxi's rural life as the subject of their works. In the film, three writers, Jia Pingwa, Yu Hua and Liang Hong, belonging to three different generations, describe their own experiences and impact on their work in urbanized China, completely altered by the Cultural Revolution, Economic Reforms and Modernization.

The screening will be followed by a discussion.


Entrance is free of charge. Tickets are available by registering on this link.
