Masterplanning the Future (MPTF) Film Night: Up the Yangtze


The Department of Architecture's magazine Masterplanning the Future (MPTF) is organising a regular film night to look at important contemporary documentaries that examine the changing face of China. The film showing is followed by a short discussion and the film is then reviewed by students for MPTF.

All welcome.

At the edge of the Yangtze River, not far from the Three Gorges Dam, young men and women take up employment on a cruise ship, where they confront rising waters and a radically changing China.
