Happy Lunar New Year from the USC US-China Institute!
This is a short documentary on Los Angeles produced by one student from USC and one from the Communication University of China. 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.
