"Imported from China" is a half-hour documentary film that follows individuals from China who are navigating college life in the U.S. After the film, there will be a panel discussion featuring University of Washington students from China speaking about their own experiences.
About the film:
This documentary was created by a team of journalism and other Comm Arts students and led by Academic Specialist Troy Hale and Associate Professor Geri Zeldes Alumit at Michigan State University. It follows several Chinese international students who are grappling with finding a place in American Universities and within the larger U.S. context. The film demonstrates how relationships are nurtured and shaped across cultural boundaries. “Imported from China” is also a snapshot of the largest demographic shift in the university's history.
