Sing China!

(72 minutes) China/USA

Sunday, 10/24, 7:00pm (Session VII)

Director/Producer: Freida Lee Mock


Sing China! offers a look behind-the-scenes at the Los Angeles Children's Choir, chronicling its groundbreaking tour of China. Following the chorus' sixty members, all between eleven and seventeen years old, Mock not only captures the excitement and drama of performance, but also paints a portrait of a changing China, one then on the cusp of hosting the 2008 Olympics. Internationally acclaimed, the Los Angeles Children's Chorus includes youth from over fifty diverse communities across Los Angeles and has traveled around the world, bringing its young ambassadors of American culture from Brazil to Australia. In the chorus' first trip to China, Mock captures the intimate moments of their rehearsals and performances, and also their interactions with host organizations and fellow Chinese singers.
