“手城” : 记录片放映和讨论 “City of Hands”: Documentary Screening and Discussion
景德镇是中国的瓷都。作为几千年的御窑之乡，景德镇陶瓷曾经是西方 “China”的代表。 20世纪90年代末陷入混乱之后，这个城市现在开始吸引年轻艺术家。被艺术家的绿洲所吸引，从中国和世界各地的人来到景德镇，追求艺术灵感和独立的生活方式。
来参加北京美国中心的“手城”放映，这部纪录片描绘了景德镇四位年轻艺术家的生活。电影放映后，电影导演Nathaniel Brown将主持讨论。Nathaniel是电影导演并且是2013-2014年在景德镇的富布莱特学者;他的工作主要着重于分析中国各地的创意社区。目前在景德镇的2016-2017富布莱特学者Christy Wittmer也将加入讨论环节。
Jingdezhen is China’s porcelain capital. Home to imperial kilns for thousands of years, Jingdezhen ceramics were once a representation of “China” to the west. After falling into disarray in the late 1990s, the city has now begun to fill with young artists. Drawn to what has now become an oasis for artists, people from all over China—and the world—come to Jingdezhen in pursuit of artistic inspiration and an independent lifestyle.
Come join us at the Beijing American Center for a screening of “City of Hands,” a documentary that profiles the lives of four young artists in Jingdezhen. The film will be followed by a discussion with the film’s director, Nathaniel Brown. Nathaniel is a filmmaker and was a Fulbright scholar in Jingdezhen in 2013-2014; his work centers around profiling creative communities throughout China. He will be joined by Christy Wittmer, a 2016-2017 Fulbright scholar currently in Jingdezhen.
The film will be in Chinese with English subtitles. The director’s introduction and discussion will be primarily in English, but will be open to questions and discussion in Chinese.
