CineCulture: Director to discuss ‘Finding Kukan’ Sept. 28

CineCulture will present the free screening of “Finding Kukan” at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28 in the Peters Education Center Auditorium, west of the Save Mart Center in the Student Recreation Center Building. The post-screening discussion will be led by director Robin Lung. In the late 1930s, China is in dire straits and will collapse under Japan’s military if it does not receive outside assistance. Chinese-American firebrand Li Ling-Ai hires American photojournalist Rey Scott to travel to China and capture a citizen’s perspective of the war-torn country. Their landmark film “Kukan” is screened by President Roosevelt at the White House, called “awesome” by the New York Times, and receives one of the first Academy Awards for a feature documentary in 1942. “Finding Kukan” is sponsored by Center for Creativity and the Arts. Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays. CineCulture is a film series provided as a service to Fresno State students, faculty and staff and the community.
