Event is Free and Open to the Public but requires a ticket


Wu Man joins the Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Chicago in a screening and discussion of the documentary Discovering a Musical Heartland: Wu Man’s Return to China. The film, which Wu produced and directed, documents her travels through China’s remote regions as she unearths ancient musical traditions in danger of being lost. Wu says, “I hope that through the documentary film the audience can travel with me to China’s remote countryside, to discover music rarely seen or heard outside of these areas, to see the inside of China.”

Guests are invited to a reception prior to the screening beginning at 5:30 PM. Following the screening, Wu will participate in an open discussion with the audience.
