"Autobiography II: Struggle" (Wu Wenguang, 2018, 65 min, China, Chinese w/ English subtitles, Color, Digital)

"From the moment when my mother disclosed a long kept secret, my birth was accompanied by many struggles for my mother. Those "struggles" include: during pregnancy, "should this child be kept," to the painful struggles in the delivery process. Struggles have also accompanied since I was born, becoming part of my life." (WW)

Wu and two of his collaborators will be on campus for three nights of film screenings and one night of performance.
