This event has now passed.

An old man comes back to Beijing after 40 years in search of memories. A young girl yearns to leave. A young man decides to make an unattainable documentary in Beijing about the legend of a lost king. While the bricks of the old alley get removed one by one, a new CCTV landmark building is about to be completed. Where are the city and the memories heading for after the gigantic black hole of the new building is created? Shot on location during the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Beijing is Coming is both a real fiction and fake documentary recording the city life and cityscape of that particular period. Director Bono Lee is cultural critic and writer. Since 2004, he has moved between Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing. Film is in Chinese with English subtitles. Click here to register.
