Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress Screening and Discussion
Feb 13, 2017, 7:00 pm
"Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress" is a 2002 film by Chinese director Sijie Dai, who has lived in France since
the 1980s; the film is based on his own life. It tells of two young men sent to the country during the Cultural
Revolution in China to be reeducated by hard labor. They fall in love with a young seamstress and each attempt to
make her fall in love with them, using their knowledge of classic western literature such as the works of Honoré de
Balzac. Its central theme is the power of books, and their connections to love, pleasure and the individual, which is
strikingly in opposition with the anti-intellectual environment of the Cultural Revolution in China. Visiting Chinese scholar, Dr. Qingping Liu, will lead the discussion following the screening of the film.
This program is funded in part by a UH Quick Grant.
