This terrific film is about a secret written language, Nu Shu, developed by women over many centuries in South China. Though as a rule and by custom women were unable to become officially educated, in one region they developed a written language which was passed down from mother to daughter, for female-centric communication.

Speakers: Filmmaker Jing Liu had planned to join from China. Due to an emergency, she is unable to attend. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Sponsors: Alice Paul Center, Penn East Asian Studies, Phila Asian American Film and Filmmakers, Penn Cinema Studies, The Wolf Humanities Center
