Join us for a conversation with Zhang Yang, China’s most successful independent filmmaker, who will discuss his acclaimed work, Shower, with producer Peter Loehr, and film expert Richard Peña! Our experts will talk about China in the 90s, the impact of the reform era on film, the and the important legacy of Shower, more than two decades after its release. Set in a public bathhouse in an old neighborhood of Beijing, the film is a light-hearted comedy-drama about a family and their business caught up in the changes sweeping China at the dawn of the 21st century. The country’s struggle between tradition and modernity is played out between two brothers, against the backdrop of a cast of bathhouse patrons.
