On May 18th from 2-5 p.m. in Pollock Theater, there will be a film screening of “Red Sorghum.” Directed by celebrated Chinese auteur Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern, Hero) and based on Nobel Prize-winning author Mo Yan’s novel, “Red Sorghum” is a landmark in contemporary Chinese cinema and culture. The film blends the stories of three generations of a family with their region’s journey through feudalism, war, and revolution. Michael Berry (Asian Languages and Cultures, UCLA) will join Wesley Jacks (Film and Media Studies, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion.
