Waking the Green Tiger—6:30 on June 29

Update: This event went very well. Great work—as usual—by Cinevolution Media Arts Society.

As the old cop-out puts it, “You can’t fight city hall.” In China, ordinary people who stood up for themselves went up against more than city hall, as shown in a memorable film, Waking the Green Tiger.

Those people took on the Chinese government. Richmond is more of an easygoing amiable dragon than a tiger, but we can learn a lot from them.

On Friday, June 29, 6:30–9 p.m., our society is honoured to co-present a special community screening of Waking the Green Tiger.

Gary Marcuse’s documentary captures the birth of the conservation movement that has taken hold in China, starting with those ordinary people.

In keeping with the nature of Richmond, there will be simultaneous showings in Chinese and English in the Richmond Cultural Centre. The two audiences will then come together as one.

Ying Wang of Cinevolution Media Arts Society has arranged for the filmmakers to attend and participate in discussion.

Our conservation society will be included on the panel, which will relate the film to our local scene.

The price of admission is unbeatable: it’s free. You’re just asked to view critically, think together and act for results.

The venue is the Richmond Cultural Centre at Minoru Gate. See you there!
