graduate students and professors who plan to teach courses involving Chinese
films. Please distribute the information to students, colleagues, and email

The Summer Program in Chinese Film History and Criticism is hosted at the
Beijing Film Academy on July 2-29, 2007. 12 quarter credits are earned at

professors from outside Asia (Chris Berry, Yomi Braester, and James Tweedie)
and three faculty members of the Beijing Film Academy. The program also
includes meetings with filmmakers (last year's guest speakers included,
