The students were part of the first collaboration in summer 2006 to "Document the Global City." USC Cinema faculty Mark Harris and Marsha Kinder led this first group. This effort yielded a multi-year exchange that continues and is supported by the two schools, Mr. Stephen Lesser, and the USC U.S.-China Institute.
