About the Event
A 1934 Shanghai B&W movie describing the travails of a young sex worker working to send her child through school. Generally considered a classic of pre-war Chinese films. It was the most famous role of film star Ruan Lingyu. Silent with English intertitles. We've put together an interesting music sound track to go with this beautiful film.
Q&As moderated by Jeff M. Giordano will follow the film screening.
