An Impression of the 1999 China Festival
Chinese civilization has shaped its response to the mystery of
life through the arts.
"If we are to really understand Chinese culture, we must move
towards a concern for arts and the art of friendshipto a contemplation
of beauty in which, perhaps, we may find new ways of speaking that
may deepen the encounter." Ronald O. Hall
Seeking such an encounter, 300 artists, educators, businessmen,
and other participants from twenty countries engaged in a historic
exchange in Kunming, China. It was made possible through the language
of the arts.
This DVD gives a glimpse of what happened. Beauty, meaning, and
hope, celebrated together with the Chinese people, changed us all.
