    Film Screening and Panel Discussion: China’s 3 Dreams

    "In the 1970s we had only 3 dreams: a watch, a wireless and a bicycle..."

    Confused by the expurgated history they learned at school and the silence of their grandparents, China’s young people are making their way with three new dreams to guide them: the dream of the present, to make China rich and powerful, the dream of the future, to find a better life; and the almost-impossible dream of the past, the dream of meaningful existence.

    China’s 3 Dreams takes us deep inside the present dilemmas and dreams of China’s people - without mediation from Western presenters or narrators. Featuring rare archive and extraordinary testimony from former Red Guards and Rebels, here is a powerful parable of China in the twenty-first century.
