In 1979, violinist Isaac Stern set off for a goodwill trip to China. Stern was the first American musician to tour China after the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), which forbade all Western influence. This Academy® Award-winning documentary captures the historic events as Stern performs with China’s national orchestra and renowned conductor Li Delun, who acted as his guide. The film also shows Stern coaching local students, including Jian Wang (only 10 years old at the time) before his rise to international stardom. After the screening, Wang joins Music Director Michael Stern to discuss the life-changing experience.
