Description

Captain China in Africa: China’s self-image as a superpower

Wolf Warrior 2 (战狼2) is a 2017 Chinese action film directed by Wu Jing, who also stars in the lead role. The film tells a story of a loose cannon Chinese soldier named Leng Feng who takes on special missions around the world. In this sequel, he finds himself in an African country protecting medical aid workers from local rebels and vicious arms dealers. Wolf Warrior 2 was a massive commercial success in China and has become the highest-grossing Chinese film ever released.

After the screening, we will hold a discussion co-moderated by Prof. Deborah Bräutigam, Director of the China-Africa Research Initiative, and Prof. David Lampton, Director of SAIS-China and China Studies.

Popcorn will be provided. Please register to attend - seating is limited.

This event is co-sponsored by the China Africa Research Initiative, SAIS China Studies, SAIS African Studies and SAIS Strategic Studies.

Disclaimer: The showing of Wolf Warrior 2 at SAIS does not imply endorsement or support of any of the views or opinions expressed in the film.
