reel china

Starting in 2006, The Center for Religion and Media’s co-director Angela Zito joined forces with Zhang Zhen in Cinema Studies at NYU to produce the Reel China @NYU Documentary Biennial. It showcases documentary work by filmmakers who work outside China’s state-sponsored film system, with a special interest in the ethical activism enabled through such filmmaking. Reel China is presented by The Asian Film & Media Initiative, The Department of Cinema Studies, and the Center for Religion & Media.

The next Reel China will take place in Fall 2019 — Please check back soon for more information!
