Fall 2012 Globalspeak Series Begins with Documentary about Chinese Reality Show
Director Ole Schell will be on campus to discuss his film "Win in China"
Director Ole Schell will be at LIM College on September 4 for a screening and discussion of his documentary Win in China. The film follows the China Central Television game show of the same name and captures the essence of a country that in 25 years has surged from extreme poverty to become the third largest economy on Earth.
According to the film's website, "For the first time, westerners see Chinese capitalism in its rawest form. Superficially similar to western business, Chinese business culture is unique. Beneath the game show’s surface lies a nuanced, subtle view of Chinese business practices, ambitions, ethical norms and competitive behaviors."
In the fall of 2011, LIM College and the Student Government Association (SGA) introduced a new event series for students. Known as "GlobalSpeak," it brings people who are actively involved in all types of global issues to the LIM College campus.
Says Michael Palladino, Director of Student Life, "GlobalSpeak is an academic enhancement meant to stimulate conversation, open opportunities, and create a global awareness of people, places and issues. We aim to create an interactive dialogue to engage our students beyond the classroom and prepare them to not only be potential business leaders, but also global citizens."
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: 12 East 53rd St. (The Townhouse)
