Duke's Screen/ Society continues its "Displacement Series," focusing on Chinese films dealing with those displaced by the Three Gorges Dam. Director Feng Yan spent a decade filming Zhang Bingai, a peasant woman who refused to move, for his 2007 documentary Bing Ai. Bingai's charisma and resilience shine through as we see her in various confrontations with stolid local bureaucrats who are "just doing their jobs." The screening is sponsored by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, the Asian/ Pacific Studies Institute, the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image and the Duke University Libraries. —Zack Smith
