THE MAKING OF THE FIRST EVER U.S.-CHINA FILM CO-PRODUCTION -
an evening with Producer, Peter Shiao, and screening of RESTLESS.
The China Hollywood Society is honored to be hosting a screening of the first US-China co-production, RESTLESS, and a Q&A with the film's producer and co-creator, Peter Shiao, on Monday, June 2nd at Raleigh Studios from 7pm (screening starts at 7:30pm).
A post-screening networking mixer will follow at a nearby bar - venue will be announced on the night. This is destined to be a sell-out event so we encourage you to book tickets early. Unfortunately tickets are not refundable.
About the film:
RESTLESS tracks the experiences of two young Americans in Beijing during the summer of 1997. Leah is an aimless global wanderer in search of the next adventure away from a small town existence in America, and Richard is a Chinese American surfer dude who must bring his grandfather's ashes to his ancestral home. They are joined by a colorful group of local and expat friends -- including an enigmatic Chinese chess master and a long lost grandmother -- around the Cultural Revolution themed bar the Bright Future as they navigate the cutting edge of East-West relations.
