Stories of the Cave Temples Performance was presented as part of the Getty Family Festival's program on Saturday, June 11, 2016.
On April 4, 2017, students from six LAUSD schools with Mandarin Immersion programs visited the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for a special screening of Disneynature's Born in China , a nature documentary that tells the stories of love, survival, struggle, and growth of four families of animals native to China -- golden snub-nosed monkeys, snow leopards, chiru, and, of course, pandas. The film was screened in its original version: Mandarin language voice narration and subtitles, challenging students to put their language skills into practice.
This program is designed for mature students who have an arts background and demonstrated interest in global culture. As studying Mandarin and gaining experience living abroad in China are key elements of this program, applicants who are native Mandarin speakers/ have spent large amounts of time living in China should not apply.
