Chinese Culture Center Cinema (C4) is proud to present the United States premier of In Search of Lin Zhao’s Soul (2004) by director Hu Jie. Lin Zhao, an outstanding student from Peking University, was labeled a rightist when she criticized the Anti-Rightist Campaign, and was imprisoned twice. As prisoners were not allowed to have pens and paper, she wrote with her hairpin dipped in her own blood. Year after year, she wrote on, composing articles, poems and open letters, as many as 200,000 Chinese characters altogether. Hu Jie’s documentary In Search of Lin Zhao’s Soul reflects the unrivaled vigor and depth of Lin’s criticism and her excellent literary talent.
This film is 100 minutes long, and will be shown in Mandarin with English subtitles.
