This film was reviewed by Living in Nyon in 2017 and said it was “a fascinating look at the extraordinary life of these painters and of contemporary life in China”.

Before each screening, for those interested, at 19:00 there will be a guided tour of the current exhibition at the château entitled “Indiennes.
