Global Exchange Program
Film students from the University of Southern California and Communication University of China pair up to create revealing documentaries.
The Global Exchange Workshop is a collaborative initiative of the USC School of Cinematic Arts Division of Film and Television Production, and the School of Theater, Film & Television at the Communication University of China in Beijing.
