SATURDAY, DEC. 3: FILM "DEVILS AT THE DOORSTEP" WITH REMARKS BY MATTHEW HU XINYU

The RASBJ's film showing of "Devils on the Doorstep" 鬼子来了,a 2000 black comedy directed by Jiang Wen, will be preceded by remarks by Matthew Hu Xinyu.  You may know that the movie, set in the waning days of WWII, sparked heated discussion because it underscores common human traits of both Japanese and Chinese. But did you know its most memorable scenes were filmed not far from Beijing, in ancient walled towns of Hebei province? Before the film, Matthew Hu Xinyu, one of Beijing's top cultural-preservation experts, will identify important examples of traditional Chinese architecture shown in the film.
