Film Screening : Love and Duty (1931)

Directed by Bu Wancang and starring Ruan Lingyu and Jin Yan, the 1931 film Love and Duty 恋爱与义务was long considered lost, before its 1990s rediscovery in the BSI holdings in Montevideo. Wonderfully restored by the Taiwan Film and Audiovisual Institute, the film was almost immediately hailed as one of the greatest Chinese silent films.

The screening will be accompanied by musicians from HEM Silk and Bamboo Ensemble.
