Join us for an exclusive screening of the documentary Masters in the Forbidden City (我在故宮修文物) followed by a discussion with the filmmakers. A surprise box office hit in China, this film follows the daily lives of the artisans and craftspeople who restore relics at the Palace Museum in Beijing, including experts in bronze, lacquer, wood, and clockworks. Through stunning imagery and refined storytelling director Xiao Han uses his unprecedented access to the Forbidden City to celebrate and evoke the "spirit of craftsmanship" that is the hallmark of these unsung artists.
