Living Nepal 'Panopticon' Screening Series Kicks Off Thursday
By Aug 25, 2015 Community
See it all with Living Nepal. The charity organizers, who've been putting on interesting music, dance, and art-related events to support victims from the devastating April earthquake, this week launch Panopticon, a new film screening series bringing indie works from Beijing-based filmmakers to a private rooftop near you. Panopticon kicks off this Thursday, August 27 with a showing of queer director Fan Popo's internationally acclaimed documentary Mama Rainbow:

"Mama Rainbow (2012) features six mothers, from all over China, who openly and freely talk about their experiences with their gay and lesbian children. They are helping to redefine the Chinese family dynamics in a period where the LGBT community has little space for expression in China."

That's followed up on September 10 with Cab Zhao's documentary of her own spiritual journey through Nepal, Perfect Day, and on September 24 with Cao Rui's Elevation: 4600 M.

All screenings will be held at a private rooftop in the Gulou area; contact the organizers on WeChat (@livingnepal) for info and to reserve your spot. 50rmb entrance to each (100% of proceeds go to Nepal relief efforts). More info in the listing.
