1921 (film) – SACU Co-Sponsors Special Online Screening
October 2 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£6
This is a special online screening of ‘1921’, a full length feature film produced to mark this year’s centenary of the Communist Party of China. It is set against the background of the intense class struggle waged by the young Chinese working class in Shanghai in particular. The action also takes us to Moscow, Paris and elsewhere. Key early Chinese communists like Li Dazhao, Chen Duxiu, Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping all feature in this not to be missed film.
A review by Friends of Socialist China co-editor and SACU member Keith Bennett can be read online.
Please note the film is in Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles.
Who is organising the screening?
This event is organised by Friends of Socialist China, in coordination with Trinity Cine Asia. SACU is a co-sponsor along with the Morning Star, the Geopolitical Economy Research Group, the International Manifesto Group, and Qiao Collective.
How does the online screening work?
At the start time (7pm Britain, 2pm US Eastern, 11am US Pacific), registered users will receive (by email) a link to stream the film. They will then have a three-hour window in which to watch it.
Why is there a charge for this event?
Please note that Friends of Socialist China are not making any money from the showing; their purpose in arranging it is to ensure that its important political and cultural content reaches a wider audience. However, Trinity Cine Asia, with whom they are partnering to organise the screening, have paid the costs of distribution and marketing; therefore all proceeds go to them.
