About 30 rising senior Chinese students, from the class of 2023, who haven’t fulfilled their study away requirements now need to complete them in their senior year. Some major concerns had been holding them back from committing to other NYU global sites to meet this specific graduation requirement.
Paul Salopek was invited to NYUSH to talk about his career achievements and work progress on the Out of Eden project, which is estimated to take many years. He also gave a writing workshop for students. In both events, Salopek emphasized the importance of being slow in the generation of stories.
While being one of the highly anticipated films after the reopening of theatres for COVID-19, Jiang ZiYa had killed the box office. However, many audiences expressed disappointment about its structure and confusion about its theme after watching this film. Actually, it includes thoughtful philosophical questions and an abstract discussion of The Trolley Problem. We try to subjectively analyze its inner conflict of having a huge theme, plain characters, and plot setting and how these conflicts become an unavoidable problematic narrative form. In the end, we still regard it as a pioneer of Chinese adult film animation.
