The Road to Fame

Air date: Sat., Jan. 17, 8:00 pm


This is a unique coming-of-age story with Chinese characteristics. The film chronicles the staging of the American musicalFame – China’s first official collaboration with Broadway – by the senior class of the country’s top drama academy. During the eight-month process, five students compete for roles, struggle with pressure from family and authority, and prepare to graduate into a cut-throat and corrupt entertainment industry. They must confront complex social realities and their own anxieties, and, in the process of staging Fame, negotiate their own definitions of and paths to success in today’s China.
