“A note to say BRAVO. I just finished watching the film, and what a lovely, thoughtful job you’ve done. You give each artist her/his full humanity. The gender conversation is so subtle, and yet so well rendered/considered, and the art? It tells a complicated and beautiful and also sad story about Beijing and the world and all of us. ”
Rachel DeWoskin, author of Foreign Babes in Beijing: Behind the Scenes of a New China

“Students will take interest in the human struggles of the artists in this film. It will open the door to learning about China.”
Ralph Gabbard, Asian studies librarian, Arizona State University

“The international perspective of this film will bring depth and inclusivity to art-focused collections. The artists’ stories and insight into their own careers could also be of biographical value. “

 “…an illuminating snapshot of a developing cultural scene.”
Video Librarian (C. Cassady)

“[The film] brings you behind the auction headlines and gallery glitz to a virtual face to face with the subjects in their homes and studios. Their personal stories and relationships as well as their artistic evolutions and challenges in the context of a Chinese society hurtling through myriad changes offer something for all interested in China and/or its culture.”
Ruth A. Kurzbauer, former U.S. diplomat in China
