Youth chronicles the lives of a group of idealistic adolescents in a military art troupe in the People’s Liberation Army during the Cultural Revolution. They experience love, lust, betrayal, and suffering against the background of Mao-era singing and dancing. The two key characters, Feng Liu and Xiaoping He, also participate in the Sino-Vietnamese War in 1979 and become heroes for their acts of courage. After the war, they are honorably discharged from the Army but struggle to make ends meet in Reform-era China.

Introduction and discussion will be led by Yitian Zhai, PhD candidate, UB Department of Comparative Literature.
