4 March — 1 April 2021 Entrance is free — Visit now

Starting this month Manchester’s Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) is inviting audiences to gather virtually for a free weekly Film Club. Scheduled for each Thursday during March, May, July and September, a new film will be presented and available for you to watch at home for just one week. The idea is to connect and consider key issues of our contemporary moment through the moving image, and discover some of China’s most interesting artists along the way.

The film club starts on Thursday 4 March with Liu Chuang’s Special Economic Zone (2018) — a film exploring economic and urban growth in the city of Shenzhen. From there, Sookoon Ang’s Living for Art (2019) investigates working conditions in the global art market (Thu 11 March), before an online screening of CFCCA’s previous residency artist Dorothy Cheung’s Home, and A Distant Archive (2020) from Thursday 18 March. The first batch of films concludes with Su Yu Hsin’s もり Mori (2020), which looks at the relationships between communities, folklore and nature (Thu 25 March).
