Remembering Xinjiang during the pandemic: from Kanas Lake to the Parmir Plateau

splendid-land-poster%20FINAL%20ld.jpg
Splendid Land, Huaqing Jin and Eleni Vlassi By Moira Sullivan The pandemic has caused restlessness for travelers especially for those who have been to memorable places such as Xinjiang, China venerated in Splendid Land by award winning documentary filmmaker and teacher Huaqing Jin. It is a trip to a stunning area little known in the west. There are numerous examples of why it is a magnificent area with a capital city that embraces modernity, and grasslands, desert and plateaus that embo...

Bracketing the discussion of human rights issues, it focuses instead on the lifestyle, festivals, rituals, and  art forms  from music to dance,  of some of the 47 ethnic gr...
 

 

Bittersweet SPLENDID LAND offers a new tune for some of China’s 55 ethnic minorities

SplendidLandDancers2021.png
By Quendrith Johnson     In the short film SPLENDID LAND, an ethnomusicologist muses on Tajik, Khazak, India-influenced Mukam musicians, and Uyghur song and dance culture in a Marcel Proust-like reminiscence of Northwestern China, the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.    During the Pandemic as a bookend for the film, a kaleidoscope of multicultural sights and wonders light up a rolling vast swath of grasslands to the Gobi desert, as recalled from a UK home base. Th...
