Screening and Discussion: Maineland

December 10, 2019
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Columbia Global Centers | Beijing, No. 26, 1F Core Plaza, 1 Shanyuan Street, Zhongguancun, Haidian District, Beijing

In celebration of female directors, Columbia Global Centers | Beijing, in partnership with the U.S. Embassy, invites you to a screening and discussion of the documentary film "Maineland" by filmmaker Miao Wang. This is the ninth event of the Center's Women Leadership Series.

The film follows the story of two affluent and cosmopolitan Chinese teenagers as they settle into a boarding school in rural blue-collar Maine. "Maineland" captures bubbly, fun-loving Stella and introspective Harry as they get adjusted to their new life in America. We see their disappointments, challenges and triumphs and how they deal with and experience culture shock, alienation, and questions of personal identity.

This event is also part of the Next Gen Women's program.
