Global UW: "Imported from China" Documentary & Discussion on September 4

"Imported from China" is a half-hour documentary film that follows individuals from China who are navigating college life in the U.S. The film follows several Chinese international students who are grappling with finding a place in American universities and within the larger U.S. context. The recent large influx of Chinese students at U.S. universities has reignited the conversation about the growing need for intercultural competence. The film is a snapshot of this demographic shift, and demonstrates how relationships are nurtured and shaped across cultural boundaries.

The screening of the film will be followed by a facilitated discussion during which members of the UW community and students from China will have an opportunity to share their experiences.
