Join us on November 22nd, 2023, at 6 pm at the Concordia Ethnography Lab (EV 10. 625) for the screening of “Huahua’s Dazzling World and Its Myriad Temptations (2022)” & Q&A with the director!
Huahua, an eccentric and exuberant woman from Xiongan New Area, a government-planned city just south of Beijing, livestreams herself dancing, singing, and chatting with fans for a living. Cell phone screens, beauty filters, and digital soundscapes reveal a world that Huahua creates with her own image.
Daphne Xu is a Chinese Canadian artist and filmmaker exploring the politics and poetics of place. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
