Beginning with a mining explosion in Mongolia and ending in a ghost city west of Beijing, documentarian Zhao Liang’s new film Behemoth details, in one breathtaking sequence after another, the social and environmental devastation driven by the totality of humankind’s desire and greed. After the screening, Director Liang will attend via Skype for a discussion with Gen Carmel of the LEF Foundation and Crows & Sparrows. The discussion will be interpreted by Canaan Morse, a Ph.D. candidate in Chinese Literature at Harvard.
Behemoth is co-presented by The DocYard; Crows & Sparrows; the Harvard-China Project, Harvard Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences; and the Environment in Asia Series, Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies.
Free admission to holders of a current Harvard ID, sponsored by Harvard-China Project and Harvard-Global Institute
