Harvard Ed Portal, 224 Western Ave., Allston

Join the Harvard Ed Portal and the Boston University Arts Initiative for a screening and conversation on the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Boston University Artist-in-Residence Xu Xing is an author and documentary filmmaker. The Chinese Cultural Revolution is commonly reduced to a mere mention today’s Chinese high school textbooks. Xing works to raise awareness of this important event through creating work featuring his personal memory of the period. He will screen film clips and share his experience as a filmmaker in this event, conducted in Mandarin and interpreted into English. Middle and high school students are welcome to attend.
