CHOP (China Ongoing Perspectives) movie series, a collaboration between LRCCS and the Asia Library, will spotlight the films of award-winning director Hao Wu 吴皓, a U-M Ross alumnus originally trained as a microbiologist who followed the internet world before focusing on filmmaking.

Hao Wu takes a raw and human approach to story-telling in an era when culture evolves online and across borders.  His recent films provide a critical examination of contemporary Chinese culture by covering China’s online universe, LGBTQ parenting, and the pandemic in Wuhan.  U-M faculty and guest discussants will add their insights into the post screening Q&A, and Director Wu will be present at all events.  The festival is being organized as a virtual mini film festival.  Please stay tuned for updates and Zoom links on the LRCCS website.
