Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

Friday, November 4, 2011

Doors Open 6:30 pm, Film Program 7:00 pm-9:30 pm

CEMEX Auditorium at the Knight Management Center,

Stanford Graduate School of Business

This film is set in 19th century China and centered on the lifelong friendship between two girls who develop their own secret code as a way to contend with the rigid cultural norms imposed on women.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with Director Wayne Wang and producers Wendi Murdoch and Florence Sloan, and author Lisa See.

This program will also launch a new Stanford initiative to facilitate an intergenerational conversation on the women’s movement. As such, the Q&A will focus on a historical framing of the women’s movement, the role of culture in shaping feminism and the ways in which leadership within the movement is transferred between generations.
