“Looking to China” is a unique project in which groups of film students from around the world are invited to create documentary films on China – its landscapes, culture, and people – from an outsider point of view. Each group was hosted by a different area in the country, and the young directors were joined by local students with whom they produced the films. In the summer of 2018, students from Tel Aviv University’s Steve Tisch School of Film and Television stayed in Beijing as part of the project. Their films unwravel stories told by characters describing different encounters between nature and mankind, the Chinese cultural approach to nature, and the connection between the bustling city and natural settings. The film Painting a Forest (Shauly Melamed) won the Golden Lens 2018 second place, and A Forbidden Symphony (Rotem Katz) received honorable mention. Additional prominent films will be screened, among them Botanica (Alma Hemmo), To Catch a Butterfly (Ortal Biener) and The Plant Kingdom (Daria Turetski).
