Dear CAFAM Members,
Just clarifying an earlier message about the Chinese Cinema Weekend at the Portland Museum of Art. The earlier link we sent did not list the days and times of the films very clearly. Please go to this calendar link for the days and times of the four films.

This second link has more information about each specific film.

And to further clarify:

Fri. 1/17 – Long Day’s Journey Into Night – 2p.m.
Fri. 1/17 – Shadow – 6p.m.
Sat. 1/18 – Ash is Purest White – 2p.m.
Sun. 1/19 – One Child Nation (documentary and Q&A) – 2p.m.


Chinese Cinema Weekend at PMA 1/17-1/19

Dear CAFAM Members,

Just a reminder that the Chinese Cinema Weekend is coming up soon at the Portland Museum of Art, with four movies showing January 17-19. CAFAM is co-hosting this film festival, and we hope you will come out to show your support. Let’s demonstrate that there is interest from our community in bringing Chinese culture to Maine!

This is a rare chance to see some of the most celebrated arthouse films from China on the big screen. The four movies that will be shown are: Long Day’s Journey Into Night (2018); Shadow (2018); Ash Is Purest White (2018); and the documentary One Child Nation (2019). Please go to the PMA’s link below to find more information about each film, including showtimes and tickets (click on each individual film for information; scroll across to see all of the films):

The screening of the documentary One Child Nation on Jan 19th (2-3:30 pm) will be followed by a Q&A with Nancy Riley, chair of the department of sociology at Bowdoin. She will discuss the film in the context of her own longtime involvement with China’s one-child policy, both as a sociologist and as the parent of a daughter adopted from China—and she will answer audience questions. CAFAM is organizing this Q&A session–so please come watch the film and attend the discussion!

Hope to see you there!
