Better Angels, a feature documentary on US-China relations by director Malcolm Clarke and producer Han Yi, explores how the world's two largest superpowers are racing towards economic and political conflict, yet find themselves inextricably linked and interdependent by the ongoing bilateral reality of close economic and cultural ties.

The film captures the compelling personal stories and ideological challenges, and explores why these two countries have the world's most important relationship. Join us for a screening of this fine-grained look at the reality of US-China people-to-people ties and for an introduction and discussion with the filmmakers.
