Movie happenings

Has anyone else felt like Mao Tse-Tung has been getting more (much deserved) attention recently? The last two issues of the Monthly Review have both had good articles on China and Mao - the entire July/August issue was devoted to the subject and the September issue had a great article by William Hinton on Mao's importance.

Well Knoxville people, listen up. Next Wednesday at 3:30pm Carma Hinton, Bill Hinton's daughter, will be screening her film Morning Sun in Hodges Library's Auditorium. The film presents what seems to be a rather critical view of the Cultural Revolution in China from the perspectives of its participants. I've heard that there's a possibility of her presenting a paper or at least leading a round table discussion. I'll post if any other tidbits come my way.
