UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH LIBRARY SYSTEM

Invites you to the virtual premiere of the feature-length documentary  

The Revolution They Remember

(in English)

Thursday, November 12, 2020 • 7–9:30 p.m. EST

 

The Revolution They Remember presents the Chinese Cultural Revolution era of 1966-1976 via the memories of those who experienced it and have reflected on its legacies. In 2019, the University of Pittsburgh Library System (ULS) received a one-year grant from the Henry Luce Foundation to support the creation of a feature-length documentary film titled The Revolution They Remember, a collaboration between the ULS East Asian Library (EAL) and Dartmouth Library. The Revolution They Remember is based on two video oral history projects: one by the EAL and the other by Dartmouth Library. Initiated by the EAL in 2015, The Cultural Revolution: 10 (CR/10) Project recorded, preserved, and published video interviews with Chinese citizens sharing their memories and impressions of China’s Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.  At Dartmouth Library, the Down to the Countryside Movement project includes interviews with former “Rusticated Youth,” young people who were relocated to China’s rural areas during the Cultural Revolution. The Revolution They Remember features selections from the interviews from these two projects, as well as images contributed by interview participants, archival footage and photos. The film also comprises commentary by scholars of modern Chinese history.

 

Screening followed by a Q&A session with the documentary team.
