2022 Chinese documentary Hidden Letters at CMU, December 7.

The Carnegie Mellon University International Film Festival will screen the 2022 Chinese documentary Hidden Letters on December 7.
CMUIFF is honored to screen the film Hidden Letters directed by Violet Feng in December. For centuries in China, the once-secret written language of Nüshu was calligraphed on folded fans and handkerchiefs as hidden letters so women could share stories and express solidarity in a repressive era when many women were denied literacy. Confronting patriarchy, two modern women find solace in Nüshu, rediscovering connections between traditional Chinese womanhood and contemporary feminism. On Dec. 7th at 7:30 pm, CMUIFF will screen this film at McConomy Auditorium. After the screening, Violet Feng, the director, will give a Q&A talk on the film and beyond. Chinese Catering will also be provided.
It plays at 7:30 pm in McConomy Auditorium (map) and features a Q&A with director Violet Feng. Tickets are available online.
