The CHOP (China Ongoing Perspectives) film series will be showing Zheng Qiong's 2016 documentary A Way Out on February 12 at 5:30 pm in Weiser Hall's 10th floor event space. The film covers six years (2009-2015) in the lives of three Chinese teenagers--one from Beijing, another from a small town in Hubei Province, and a third from a small mountain village in Gansu Province--and and how they navigate their dreams, expectations, fears, and hopes as they begin to shape their futures. The discussant will be Yun Zhou, U-M Assistant Professor of Sociology, who is a social demographer and family sociologist. Please join us: admission is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served. 

CHOP is co-sponsored by the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies and Asia Library
