CineCulture screens ‘Shadow Magic’ by Chinese director Ann Hu

Suffering both physical cultural invasions by the West, 20th century Chinese are suspicious and antagonistic toward anything that the West has to offer. Set against this historical background, Raymond Wallace, an Australian brings yet another Western innovation: the motion picture, or what the Chinese literally call “shadow magic.” His efforts are met with both awe and suspicion. The movie is in English and Mandarin with English subtitles. The discussant is Dr. Ed EmanuEl, Fresno State Mass Communications and Journalism film writing professor. The free screening is at 5 p.m. Sept. 7, in the Peters Education Center Auditorium (west of the Save Mart Center in the Student Recreation Center building). Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays with no permit necessary in lots P3 or P2. CineCulture is a film series provided as a service to Fresno State campus students, faculty and staff and community.
