Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label


Promoting the study of English as a patriotic duty, Li Yang has held thousands of events in some 60 Chinese cities for more than 13 million people since 1988. In wildly popular mass events (in the Forbidden City, at the Great Wall, on the Marco Polo Bridge). Li leads crowds in a cathartic yelling of slogans: “Study English well to promote world peace!” – “Make international money!” – “This is the American dream” – he says – “And I want to make it a Chinese dream!”.
