Synopsis

Sunday, August 4 at 4PM

Director Nanfu Wang is a member of the One Child Generation in China. After becoming a mother herself, she uncovers the untold history of China's one-child policy and the generations of parents and children forever shaped by this social experiment.  

Traumatic recollections from her own family’s recent past unleash a dizzying number of revelations from journalists, officials, parents, and activists. This brilliant combination of cultural reporting and interpersonal reckoning manages to encapsulate decades of underreported events making them accessible even to viewers with no prior understanding of the policy's history.

In Search of Mozart

E Documentary

Made to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth, IN SEARCH OF MOZART is the first feature-length documentary on Mozart's life. Produced with the world's leading orchestras and musicians, told through a 25,000 mile journey along every route Mozart followed, this detective story takes us to the heart of genius. Throughout, it is the music that takes center stage, with the jigsaw of Mozart's life fitting around it. With rigorous analysis from musicologists and experts such as Jonathan Miller, Cliff Eisen, Nicholas Till, Bayan Northcott and the late Stanley Sadie, a new, vivid impression of the composer emerges. It dispels the many common myths about Mozart's genius, health, relationships, death and character, to present a new image, very different from Milos Forman's 'Amadeus'.
