“Last spring, Jennifer Wong gave us a program about her grandfather, Liu Jipiao, the Father of Art Deco in China. The program was so well received, so when she mentioned that a friend had produced a film about Art Deco in Shanghai, we naturally wanted the film for a program.

A screening of Shanghai Deco. A look at the art and lifestyle in 1930s Shanghai. This city of refugees became the birthplace of a short-lived but unique form of Art Deco that hybridized Chinese traditional forms with that of the prevailing style of art in Europe and America.

Produced by Denise Richards, a graphic designer, documentary
filmmaker, artist, and educator.

A DVD of this documentary will be for sale for $20. It is for personal use only. It is not yet available to the general public.”

For those of you who cannot get to Los Angeles in November here’s a trailer/teaser of the documentary. If you would like a screening in your town, we would love to travel and do a presentation!

Here are the links to the trailer and info and brochure about the film attached.
