Another Shout Out: My Beijing Birthday

Saw a wonderful documentary the other day. Really moving and funny, but also gives great insight into how China and the Chinese are changing. It’s called My Beijing Birthday and the prime mover (and shaker, quite literally in this case) is Howard Snyder who, apart from being a great guy and living in my compound also speaks just about the best Chinese I have ever heard from a foreigner. This is of course profoundly irritating and envy-making, even more so now that he has made this lovely movie. See the trailer here and be sure to catch it when it comes your way, most likely by pirated DVD if you live in China…..:)
