- White Haired Girl, The
- Program Description
Introduced by Roxane Witke, East Asian Research Center, Harvard University, this program is a self-proclaimed modern revolutionary dance drama. The production was shot in the Shanghai Film Studios, The People's Republic of China , in 1972. Witke describes the story as that of a Northern Chinese peasant girl of the 1930’s “who suffers such tyranny under the pre-revolutionary social system that her hair prematurely whitens.” The production is important, again according to Witke, because it exemplifies how the Communist Chinese used artistic means to convey political ideals. 1974.
