When China Met Africa (Film)
China in Canada (Panel Discussion)

May 28, 2012, 7 PM
Library & Archives Canada
395 Wellington
Admission: $15 ($10 for students)

Tickets are now available at Compact Music (785 Bank, 190 Bank), Collected Works (1242 Wellington), and Ottawa Festivals (47 William). Tickets will also be available at the door.

"This documentary explores the burgeoning economic relationship between China and Zambia. It's shot with an acute eye for the discomfort of discordant cultures co-existing. What's interesting here is that you feel this story is only just beginning."
      The Times of London

"A dark, quiet, damning documentary looking at China's determined expansion into Africa (here Zambia) through the lives of a Chinese farmer, a road builder, and the Zambian trade minister. When in 1999 China announced its "go global" policy it had Africa very much in mind, and specifically the raw materials that go into the construction of our electrical equipment. A creeping, alarming account of exploitation as well as a study into the psychology of colonialism."
      Financial Times

After the film, we will have a panel discussion in the implications of Chinese investment in Canada with Ottawa Citizen Columnist Terry Glavin, Human Rights campaigner David Kilgour, Terrorism and Security Specialist David Harris, University of Ottawa Professor Scott Simon, and Jason Loftus, Deputy Publisher of the Epoch Times Canada.

Finally, we will then have a private reception - so please join us for an evening of film, discussion, and food & drink!

I must admit whenever I look at what China's doing in the world, I am ever more confused.

I hope this film makes it to Netflix and other easy to reach distribution channels soon.
