Conversation with award winning film director Liang Shan (Shanghai Film Studio)

Thank you for coming to our talk event with film director Liang Shan. Director Liang connected with our students live from Shanghai on site shooting for his next TV program 《浦东人家》 . The setting is in the 1970s, and the shooting location is a historical ,180 years old residential house known as 绞圈房子. Director Liang showed our students various key roles of a production team. Such interesting and informative conversation. We are so proud of our students too, asking excellent questions in Chinese that prompted Director Liang to share his experiences as a film director in depth. 梁导演说电影是让人催眠的艺术,他最喜欢的位置是电影院的右前方,在角落里回头看到所有的观众,在电影结束之后灯光亮起来的一瞬,观众说的第一句话,就是电影最好最真实的评价。 感谢梁导演和剧组全体人员!

We thank Professor Emerita Jessica Williams, former Head of Linguistics dept., and Professor Charles David, former faculty/student of Chinese classes, for their generous support that funded the event.
