Val Wang presents Beijing Bastard: Into the Wilds of a Changing China

Growing up in the suburbs of Washington, DC as the child of Chinese immigrants, Val Wang often felt suffocated by her family’s expectations, and in the ultimate act of rebellion, moved in 1998 to the country her parents had fled in 1949. Beijing Bastard is the witty, compelling story of Val’s coming-of-age as a documentary filmmaker in a rapidly modernizing China, where entire old neighborhoods are being demolished to make way for sleek new high-rises, and a subversive, bohemian culture of avant-garde art exists side by side with traditional Confucian values.
