Wonderful and fascinating, just like a dream, it reveals art and human nature and illustrates amicability and life as it explores an innovative series of performances. The documentary will also be shown in the Linwood Dunn Theatre at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on September 29. A delegation of the China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe will also attend the exhibit reception hosted by UCLA University Librarian Gary E. Strong on Sunday, September 23.
