Sue Williams - Filmmaker/Director
Special screening and Q&A with Director and Filmmaker Sue Williams
Starting in 2004 Sue Williams began filming nine Chinese Gen X’ers at home and at work, returning once a year to record the changes in their lives. The film tracks four wildly ambitious graduates, a media savvy hip hop artist, two migrant workers living precariously on society’s edge, a dedicated medical resident and a courageous environmental activist.
What happens along the way is surprising: some find themselves torn between traditional culture and tantalizing new opportunities; several begin the heady ride to wealth and power. Some find love and resolve family conflicts, and others seem likely to crash and burn along the way.
Young and Restless in China
Directed by Sue Williams (2008, DVD, 106 min., color, USA, In English and some Mandarin)
