After learning about Sterling Clark’s 1908-9 expedition through northern China, photographer Li Ju set out on a personal quest to reshoot modern images of the sites and scenes that were originally photographed by Clark’s expeditionary team. Li’s trek was captured in a documentary presentation that aired over five nights on CCTV, the national TV station of the People’s Republic of China, recounting the story of the original expedition along with that of the equally arduous journey Li undertook some 100 years later. This English-language short film provides a 45-minute overview of the full documentary. The film will be shown in our auditorium every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in July and August. Admission is free. (45 min)
