|Boomtown Beijing - a new film|
|May 6, 2008 20:06|
|This is an independent movie, not on general release, but being shown at a few venues around Bejing and in Xian at the moment.|
It sounds like a fascinating story, told in a documentary/essay style, about the lives of 3 Beijingren in the run-up to the Olmypics.
Events and proceeds are being donated to charity and so I just want to help raise awareness of the film and its screenings.
I'd just like to add I am not affiliated to the film in any way, I just happened to learn about it and think it sounds brilliant!
The film is in Chinese, with English subtitles.
You can see a trailer on youtube:http://www.youtube.com/
or check out the official website (in English) at: http://boomtownbeijing.com/
or read an overview and interview with the director at: http://www.lostlaowai.com/
Has anyone seen it? I'd be interested to hear any thoughts...

|Hi, as far as I know it's not possible to get copies of this, it is only being shown in private screenings in a few places.|
