High Tech, Low Life

This award-winning documentary follows two of China’s first citizen reporters as they travel through the country, chronicling underreported news and social issues stories. Using laptops, cell phones, and digital cameras to micro-blog the stories and issues shaping contemporary Chinese life, they challenge conventional definitions of journalism and provoke discussion about what freedom of press means in the face of China’s evolving censorship. The film’s director, Stephen Maing, will provide an introduction to the documentary, as well as conduct a question and answer session immediately following the screening.
