Come to the Purple Lounge (Robarts Library, 14th floor) this Thursday, November 23 to watch the film screening of “Manchurian Sleepwalkers”, hosted by the East Asian Studies Students Union!
The film is directed and produced by Professor Thomas Lahusen, who will be present at the event doing an introduction and will also host a Q&A period at the end.
Film description: With the passage of time, remembering becomes a form of sleepwalking. One-time émigrés of Manchuria and its legendary city, Harbin, take us on a journey of memory back to China. For many — Russians, Poles, Germans and Japanese — who left the country of the “last emperor” during the late 1940s and 50s, remembering borders on obsession. For Kumiko Muraoka, a Japanese-French poet, only forgetting alleviates the pain of having lost her childhood home.
