Entrance of the Dutch Cultural Center in Shanghai, part of the Dutch contribution to the World Expo.

During the weekend of 9 and 10 July at the World Expo in Shanhai, Joris Ivens will be honored in a true `Joris Ivens weekend`. On Friday evening and Saturday afternoon and evening 13 films by Joris Ivens are screened. The films are grouped around six themes: Introduction / Stories in China / Against Facism / Avant-garde / China / Poetry and Cinema. Mrs Loridan-Ivens and the European Foundation Joris Ivens will be present to introduce the films. The theatre space at the Dutch Culture Centre will also host a small exhibition of photographs of Joris Ivens and Mrs Marceline Loridan-Ivens.

One of the films is The 400 Million (in 1938), showing Mr. Zhou-Enlai and Mr. Zu De with music of The March of the Volunteers (which later became the National Anthem of the People’s Republic of China). Don`t miss the unique opportunity of viewing the Chinese culture and the turbulent 20th century through the camera of Ivens.
