THE DIRECTOR Cathy Yan, was born in China and lived in Hong Kong and the US. She's Asian with a Western twist. She understand both worlds. Her first job was as a reporter for the Wall Street journal and her eye for the news is what brought her to pick such a challenging subject in China. Right now she's heavily into post production of her latest film based on the DC UNIVERSE. She just made history by being the first Asian woman to direct a female-driven superhero movie. THE FILM Dead pigs is all about the environment, pollution, industrial wastes and the regeneration business that goes with it. Main characters in this film are as diverse as possible. A bumbling pig farmer, a feisty salon owner, a sensitive busboy, an expat architect and a disenchanted rich girl converge and collide as thousands of dead pigs float down the river towards a rapidly-modernising Shanghai. (VO with English subtitles) DANCE Lucia Tong is a wonderful dancer with a background in dance and theatre performance. Lucia works to uncover visceral and intuitive truths through the body.  Lucia creates multi-disciplinary works with her own company Pangea Art and with Arts 4 Human Rights to promote the use of arts to engage people with social thinking and action.. CUISINE Shanghai cuisine has a unique style based on colour, aroma and taste. A custom made menu for the festival includes signature dishes such as Shanghai dumplings (xiao long bao), the famous Cha siu Piggy buns and a selection of grilled Chinese tapas.
