Evans Chan, Director

Free Admission/Open to the Public

Q&A with Director Evans Chan will be held immediately following the screening.

Framed around the Swedish sojourn (1904-1908) of Kang Youwei (Liu Kai Chi), who famously revived the Confucian utopia Datong (The Great Society), the film traces the struggle of Kang, his daughter Tung Pih (Lindzay Chan), and his disciple Liang Qichao (Ben Yeung) to modernize China's imperial monarchy. Renowned theatre artist Chiang Ching narrates and the virtuosic Mary Stephen edits director Evans Chan's inventive docu-drama.
