Joining us in the studio today is media and communication consultant, Miss Han Hua.

Q1:Thank you for being here. First off, lets’ talk about,  “The Great Wall” - Zhang Yimou’s latest film starring Hollywood actor, Matt Damon. Estimated to be China's most expensive movie yet, the film is an action adventure monster film. The reviews have been mixed and it’s actually stirring up some controversy on social media. Why do you think that is?

Q2: Is this the same type of controversy that we saw in the WW2 drama “Flowers of War” - WHITE washing... What is a white protagonist doing in Medieval China?

Q3: Another film “Masters in The Forbidden City” by Chinese director Xiao Han was initially released as a three-episode documentary for CCTV Channel 9 and is now a full length documentary. It's the first-ever movie to totally cover the history of Chinese antiquities restoration, and has been getting rave reviews. Can you tell us more about that?
