Title: SBU : WANG : OUT OF FOCUS FILM SCREENING
Description: "Out of Focus
(2017 | 88 minutes | Documentary | In Mandarin, with English subtitles | Directed by Shengze Zhu)

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 4:00 PM
Charles B. Wang Center Lecture Hall I
Free Admission!

Discussion and Q&A led by Prof. E. K. Tan and Prof. Mireille Rebeiz from the Department of Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature.

This documentary offers a harsh and unsettling portrait of poverty and urbanism through the sobering perspectives of “migrant children” in modern China. These children were originally from rural areas but have since moved to Wuhan, as their parents chase work and the possibility of a better life in the most populous city in central China. Many of the children fell in love with the bustling city at first, a huge change from the quiet, tranquil countryside existences they previously lived. They grow ambitious about the bright futures the big city could provide them."
