  • About the Talk

    A phenomenon that will continue to prevail in China over the next three decades, urbanization has created intricate relationships among communities composed of immigrants and strangers. Over the past century, numerous romantic movies have shown diversified forms of romantic love in various astounding love stories that happened in cities. This talk will show the emotional changes during the urbanization process and analyze the confusion and exploration of modern people, by looking into five impressive movies (the German film Run Lola Run, the American film Out of Africa, the French film Last year at Marienbad, the Japanese film The Makioka Sisters and the Italian film La strada) that depict diverse lives and the unique joys and sorrows of men and women from different places, echoing with the current urban life in China.
