IN SEARCH OF PERFECT CONSONANCE
(39 min) China/Hong Kong/Japan/Vietnam


THURSDAY 10/19, 6:30 PM (Session 1)

Director/Producer:
Ruby Yang

Description:
Twenty-five years ago, China was at war with Vietnam, the Chinese and the Japanese were at loggerheads, and relations across the Taiwan Strait were frosty. In Search of Perfect Consonance profiles the Asian Youth Orchestra, set up against this backdrop with the aim of connecting the region’s young people through music. As we watch the budding musicians of today’s Asia learn to work together, we are reminded of the higher ideals that music inspires.

Biography:
Ruby Yang is an award-winning Chinese-American filmmaker.
