Children of the Revolution--Under Mao's Red Sun Film Series

VIEW EVENT DETAILS

Winner of a BAFTA award (the highest British film/television award), this documentary reunites classical musicians who studied at Beijing's Central Conservatory of Music but spent most of their time forming Red Guard units and criticizing their teachers during the Cultural Revolution. Eventually sent to the countryside for hard labor, the now middle-aged friends speak of the period with a mixture of regret, anger, and nostalgia. (In English and Chinese with English subtitles.)
