American Go E-Journal

“Go Through The Dark” film premieres this week

Sunday November 7, 2021

The new film “Go Through The Dark” premieres this week in New York City at the DOC NY festival. In the film, a blind boy in China displays great skill at Go; raised by a single father with limited means, he faces deep societal prejudice against the blind.
“I think it would be a great story to inspire the blind community to chase their dreams,” director Yunhong Pu told the E-Journal. “And through the blind boy’s story, more people will know (and) be interested in Go.”
The film screens November 13 at 7:10pm and November 16 at 9:30pm at Cinépolis Chelsea.
The Nov. 13th screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director. The film will also screen online Nov. 14-28; click here for details.
