CHINESE FILM TO BE SCREENED TODAY

"The Story of Qiu Ju," a Chinese film that won Best Film and Best Actress awards at the 1992 Venice Film Festival, will be shown at 2:15 p.m. Monday, Feb. 19, in room 345, Technology Building, on the Old Dominion University campus.

The screening is part of "The Contemporary China," a Chinese film series sponsored by the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures and Center for Regional and Global Study.

In this comedy, which is shown in Chinese with English subtitles, a woman seeks justice for a a simple slight against her husband. Along the way, she encounters bureaucracy and politesse in this well-observed portrait of contemporary Chinese life.
