Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
Inquiry welcomes back film director ROBERT ADANTO. His documentary film, THE RISING TIDE is an intimate social and political portrait of contemporary China as seen through the eyes and words of the cutting edge artists working there today. Robert has just returned from showing his film in Shanghai, and has some very interesting comments to make on the current relationship between the artists and the still repressive government. How has the recent economic slump affected the artists working in China and the market for these world famous artists? Tune in and find out. Robert Adanto will be showing THE RISING TIDE, Saturday May 2 at the PEABODY-ESSEX MUSEUM in Salem, Massachusetts. For further details, go to: http://pem.org/events/music_film.php
