A talk with Master Storyteller Teng Wenji, most prominent director from the People's Republic of China

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Being as it's Chinese New Year, what better than a talk with master storyteller Teng Wenji, tracing the fascinating, real-life saga of one of China’s most revered composers. Join us in a talk about his film, Rhapsody of Spring, a look into China’s intellectual and artistic coming of age during the Cultural Revolution (1966-76). As a young composer, Zhao Liming (Shao Bing) struggles with a constellation of opposing forces: personal ambitions vs. communal obligation, romantic love vs. loyal friendship, modern music vs. traditional.
