C3: FINDING YINGYING
- 50 mins
This artist conversation will be hosted via Zoom. Click here to RSVP.
Join us every Saturday (12pm PT) in October for a C3:CONVERSE series in partnership with the Asian American Documentary Network (A•DOC) and Open Your Eyes & Think MF.
Director Jiayan Jenny Shi’s personal, investigative documentary will hit you in the gut with its intimate access and perspectives on the missing person case of visiting Chinese scholar Yingying Zhang and her family and friends’ dogged pursuit of justice in the aftermath of her disappearance. Join us for an artist conversation with the filmmaker and other guests.
Established by film publicists David Magdael and Vince Johnson, OPEN YOUR EYES & THINK MF supports films and filmmakers that may not fit within the current distribution/exhibition system. The goal is to provide access to films that are challenging and changing the landscape of truth telling and story creation. These filmmakers include BIPOC, LGBTQ + and other content creators who are on the margins. OYEATMF provides exhibition opportunities, resources, and the creation of meaningful discussions for and by filmmakers who are challenging us to think.
