Enjoy Your Stay – UCCA Screening & Talk

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

On Sunday June 6, Beijing’s UCCA (Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in 798 District) held a special screening and discussion of Short Stays. A packed auditorium watched the project’s three shorts, as well as early shorts, animations, and music videos by Zhao Ye and Peng Lei. The screening was followed by a lengthy Q&A dialogue between viewers and the project creators (filmmakers Peng Lei and Liu Jiayin, as well as photographers Madi Ju and 223, and producers Samantha Culp and Zhang Xianmin).

(Many thanks to Xie Meng and his staff who helped to set up the event!)
