Shanghai Calling, which received Best Actor, Best Screenplay, and Best Director awards at several major festivals, will show in the Humanities and Social Sciences Building, room 225, at 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 2. The Chinese Language and Culture Club will present this as part of the Student Film Series.

Imagine a steady stream of immigrants, traveling across a vast ocean to a foreign country, searching for new jobs and better lives. But the immigrants are Americans, and the country they are moving to… is China.

Shanghai Calling is a romantic comedy about modern-day American immigrants in an unfamiliar land. When an ambitious New York attorney is sent to Shanghai on assignment, he immediately stumbles into a legal mess that could spell the end of his career. But, with help from a beautiful relocation specialist, a well-connected foreign businessman, a clever but unassuming journalist, and a street-smart assistant, Sam might just save his job, discover romance, and learn to appreciate the many wonders Shanghai has to offer.

Attendance vouchers will be provided.
