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).
