series description

Have you ever wondered how a film gets made? Or considered the creative process behind every aspect that goes into making a good documentary? 18 students from San Francisco State University's renowned film school had the opportunity to dig down deep and produce documentaries during a life changing three-week journey to Huizhou, one of the most celebrated ancient towns in China. For many, this was their first trip to a country where some misconceptions were quickly dismantled. From meeting local families to exploring art studios, opera houses and health centers and learning traditions like the art of tea drinking, the students were overwhelmed by their experience and the rich stories they witnessed. With only three weeks to produce 4 short documentaries see what these next generation storytellers experienced in their journey. For many, it was not only the experience of crafting a well-told story; it was a game changer in comparing and contrasting American ideals with Chinese cultural traditions.
