Imported from China” is a half-hour documentary film that follows individuals from China who are navigating college life in the U.S. The film, created by Emmy award winning Michigan State University faculty members, follows several Chinese international students who are grappling with finding a place in American universities and within the larger U.S. context. The recent large influx of Chinese students at U.S. universities has reignited the conversation about the growing need for intercultural competence. The film is a snapshot of this demographic shift, and demonstrates how relationships are nurtured and shaped across cultural boundaries. A panel of University of Washington students from China will speak at the event about their own experiences.
