Second Sunday Culture Films is an independent documentary series connecting the Wolf Humanities Center’s annual topic to a cultural theme. Borderless, our 2021-2022 theme, is inspired by the Center’s topic of Migration. Join us as we gather cultural perspectives from filmmakers across the world who focused their lenses on Indigenous peoples grappling with borders imposed on their land.
On a Tightrope (Uyghur) 2006
76 min. Dir. Petr Lom
The tradition of tightrope walking was one of the few professional tracks available to Uyghur youth in Chinese-held territories. The children of this film take what seems like a harsh course of training to toughen them up for their skill and the world they will face.
Speakers: Dr. Rebecca Clothey, Associate Professor of Global and International Education, Drexel University.
