Hong Kong film director Yi Tang is on campus this semester and will be screening three documentary shorts and commenting on her work at the showcase.
Tang received the 2021 Cannes Film Festival Short Film Palme d’Or award for Tian Xia Wu Ya (All The Crows In The World).

The Short Film Palme d’Or is the highest award given to a short film at the festival.
At the March 8 event, Tang will also screen Black Goat, about a nun who has her first period after hearing a late-night ghost story and decides she needs to sacrifice a black goat to avoid misfortune, and Yokelan 66, set in a New York dance studio and featuring a group of elderly people yearning for love.
